Sistah Vegan is a series of narratives, critical essays, poems, and reflections
from a diverse community of North American black-identified female vegans.
Through whole-foods veganism, the contributors all show the way toward
longer, stronger, and healthier lives. This book is about how a group of
black-identified female vegans perceive nutrition, food, ecological sustainability,
health and healing, animal rights, parenting, social justice, spirituality, hair care, race, gender-identification, womanism, and liberation, all of which fight back against
the (refined and bleached) grain of our dysfunctional society. Thought-provoking for
the identification and dismantling of environmental racism, ecological devastation,
and other social injustices, Sistah Vegan is an in-your-face handbook for our time.
