buying a new ukulala and pretty freakin’ excited about it.
I love Blair Waldorf.
My darling clean-eaters, vegans and vegetarians, please add this piece to your collection. Not only because one of the essays was penned by yours truly, but because it’s the only piece of literature that discussed veganism from the perspective of the black woman - addressing critical issues of ethics, animal rights, health and food justice. Support the movement. Paz.
This is super interesting. Not a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but after going to college I’ve developed a lot of feelings about food, race, class & social mobility
This is the book that cemented my position on veganism. It let me know that despite the pervasive image of veganism as a homogenous white movement, I have a place and a voice as a black vegan woman . This book is a collection of essays that represent the rich tapestry of black female vegans. All unique and all valid and important, this book helped to let me know that I and people that look like me don’t need to be invited into the vegan community, because we have been creating our own spaces for years.
I need to get a hold of this book.
