The epilogue moves away from the discussion of enslavement and erasure and looks at Black history, presence, and perspective as a genre of restoration. The epilogue begins with the life and legacy of Jahanbakhsh Kurdizadeh, a Black Iranian from southern Iran, who has had an outsized influence on the Iranian nationalism comparative to the credit he has received. His religious eulogies for the Prophet’s family inspired one of the most famous anthems of the Iran-Iraq War. The epilogue considers his work and the mosques he was affiliated with as sites of belonging and kinship for Black Iranians. The epilogue continues with a discussion of the role of social media and the circulation of photography and other media in reclaiming the lives and histories of Black Iranians, including the work of the Collective for Black Iranians.
