Below is the audio of my March 4, 2011 talk at University of California, Davis for their “Fierce, Fearless, and Feminist” conference. My talk is called “Going Beyond the Post-Racial Vegan Mainstream: Race Conscious versus Race-Neutral Approach”. I compare Skinny Bitch, Kind Diet, and Quantum Wellness to Sacred Woman, Sistah Vegan, City of Wellness. Through a critical race feminist lens, I explain how one comes from the ‘post-racial’ (can class neutral) camp, while the latter books are an example of what a ‘race-conscious’ veganism can look like. It is a very very short version of my dissertation chapter called ‘The Skinny on Veganism: Critical Race Feminist Analysis of Popular Vegan Books”
