please do not respond to this call unless you are confident that you can
complete an entry or group of entries by that date.

If you are interested in contributing to this work, please send a c.v.

    Sorry to be leaving this as a comment. I couldn’t find an email address on the site.

    Have you seen this article about the rising popularity of fur among African Americans?

    “”Michelle and Barack make you feel like, ‘Oh, I can get dressed and look elegant and wear fur,’ ” she says.”

    • D,
      You can leave this comment on the topic about “Is Fur Really Green”? I can’t remember if that is the exact name of the topic, but that is the content.

    Hey, I love this blog and check it frequently. This doesn’t relate to the particular post, but I thought I’d share my own blog, which you can find at It’s about my experiences as a Chinese-Filipino vegan in San Francisco, with lots of recipes and whatever vegan-related miscellany catches my fancy. I’d appreciate it if you linked it to your site. Thank you and keep up the fantastic work.

    TJ — actually your blog has been linked for quite a while, over on the right, under Vegans of Color (I listed it as Chop Suey since that’s what the page says… ). 🙂

    Will anyone be contributing a section on hip-hop vegetarianism/veganism for this book? Seems essential!! From KRS thru Dead Prez to the present…
