  1. Sorry we took so long to announce this, but we’re very happy to be able to support what you’re doing!
    As for the magazine, downloading it for free is an option for sure. We just didn’t want to leave out the option for folks who want to pay for it. Increasing access to the magazine was one of the reasons we went digital, and one of the major factors for deciding to go the pay-what-you-want route, so folks can feel free to check it out for free!
    If anyone has difficulties getting the issue, please let me know. If you’re interested, I want you to be able to read it above all else! =)

    “A LOT of people might be very surprised at the number of African
    Americans who are health-conscious and who are vegan,” Evelyn Redcross
    said. She wasn’t kidding. I’ve been told, straight-faced, that “black
    vegans” are nonexistent, since the “veggie” thing is just spoiled
    white college kids acting out.

    Congratulations on the grant! Yay!

    This video led me to your other vimeo postings. The poop one was fantastic. I thought I was the only one who had the mood of entire days determined by whether or not I had a good bowel movement. Thanks for the great insights.

    Incidentally, you were especially great as a speaker!

  4. My wife & I have been Vegan & Vegetarian since 2003. Just found your advice for a Vegan pregnancy & the Sistah Vegan Movement for the 1st time! We love what you’re doing and are so proud to see more & more of OUR PEOPLE throwing off some of the culinary-cultural chains we have carried since slavery. Keep doing what you’re doing and if you’re ever in LA (I think you said you live in the Bay Area) let us know.

    Hi Breeze,

    If you’ve got time (or if any of your readers do), could you please point me in the direction of some easily accessible online articles or documentaries about the ‘othering’ of nonhuman animals, women or racial minorities (or all of the above)? I’ve been searching for a few weeks now, and I haven’t found anything specifically on the ways humans ‘other’ nonhumans, or how the ways in which different minorities are ‘othered’ intersect. If you could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks very much for your time! Warm regards,

    Claire.
