Sistah Vegan: Black Female Vegans Speak on Food, Identity, Health, and Society (Lantern Books 2010) explores food politics, identity, sexuality, health, womanism, feminism, decolonization, anti-racism, eco-sustainability, and animal rights through the lens of the black female vegan experience in the USA. It is the first volume of its kind to address the racial and gender vegan experience in the USA.

Sistah Vegan Project is centered around the lives of black female vegans. Going beyond ‘just veganism’, this project focuses on veganism as well as other holistic health practices… and intersections of race, class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, able-bodiedness, etc.

What it’s all about:

Nourishing our bodies, minds, and spirits at all levels— but from a philosophy that is driven by veganism, human rights, non-human animal rights, compassion for all, alternative ways to combat health disparities and eco-sustainable practices.

Think black feminism, meets whole foods veganism, meets eco-sustainable philosophy meets anti-racist philosophy meets decolonial theory meets health and nutrition activism.
