Black Vegans Shouldn’t Be Invisible

Open Map Blurred Map

overview:
In this class & panel we will discuss the connection between African American culture and veganism — and the erasure of Black vegans and Black veganism from our socio-cultural conversations about who is vegan and what it means to be vegan. This class will consider why mainstream media has historically depicted veganism as a largely white and elite practice and what this erasure does to historically excluded communities that have always practiced veganism.

what you'll learn:
connection between African American culture and veganism
compare and contrast contemporary media depictions of veganism vs the statistics about who is vegan and who is not
the intersectionality of plant based living and veganism
recognition of the negative effects of the white-washing of history and how erasure is an act of violence
ways to educate oneself to be more aware of the diversity of the plant based living and veganism
