Since the 70’s, L.A.’s “Little Tehran” has been home to a growing segment of Iran’s emigrant population, which now has the largest Persian population outside of Iran. The intellect and creativity of our Iranian neighbors in business, art, architecture and lifestyle have had an undeniably positive influence on our city. Take a walk through the heart of Persian Square and discover how Commerce & Culture interact to form a thriving, multi-generational community whose impact is felt not only in their new home, but in the country they left behind. Share the challenges and triumphs of generations old and new as L.A.’s Persian pioneers share their stories of immigration and assimilation.
