Sistah Vegan

Extended deadline for Abstracts is September 15, 2012. Final completed piece deadline: February 15, 2013.

You can email me your abstracts (approximately 2 paragraphs) at the email address sistahvegan(at)gmail (dot). Com

Click on the above video to hear about Brotha Vegan , the sibling to Sistah Vegan book.

This anthology isn’t only about veganism. It’s actually critical perspectives and arts coming from a black male vegan consciousness. You can talk about veganism, but you can also talk about other topics that intersect with your vegan consciousness. What are the ways in which black vegan males think about:

  1. Hip hop culture and vegan activism
  2. Environmental and nutritional racism
  3. Meat eating as a “masculine” stereotype
  4. Class and food access
  5. Structural racism’s effects on food acces
  6. “Obesity” and diabetes in the African American community
  7. Access to clean water as a race, class, and gender issue.
  8. PETA
  9. Going Green; green jobs; green economy
  10. Fatherhood

  1. getting much feedback for this project?

  2. Lordvegan, I got NONE. So, looks like the book won’t be happening anytime soon. I guess now is not the right time. Same thing with the Sistah Vegan project, though. I needed to extend the deadline a gazillion times, but I never gave up and you see that the book succeeded!

  3. such a shame. i (kevin tillman) was looking to contribute something. too bad.

  4. Aw. Yes, it seems now is not the time. Patiently waiting for this brilliant work.
