Yesterday, Washington, D.C.’s Mayor Muriel Bowser proclaimed October 24th, 2023 as Huseyn Javid’s Remembrance Day, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting United States-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce.

On his 141st anniversary, this proclamation is a heartfelt tribute to the renowned Azerbaijani poet and playwright, whose profound impact continues to shape our world.

Last year, on this very day, the United States-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC) unveiled a poignant bas-relief at its Georgetown headquarters.
