First of all, thank you for my birthday wish coming true. As of this morning, I have received the $900 I need to pay for my tuition, which is due today. I made the online payment and I'm good to go.

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

Update: on the video I don't speak of a deadline, but here it is now: August 1 2012 for abstracts. February 2, 2013 for completed pieces.

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:

Hip hop culture and vegan activism
Environmental and nutritional racism
Meat eating as a "masculine" stereotype
Class and food access
Structural racism's effects on food acces
"Obesity" and diabetes in the African American community
Access to clean water as a race, class, and gender issue.
PETA
Going Green; green jobs; green economy
Fatherhood
Teenhood
Ageism
Sexism
Food sovereignty
Occupy movement
Experiencing life as a black male who is queer and vegan
Disabilities studies and race
Prison industrial complex
Afrocentricism
Spirituality and consumption
Critical analysis of Afrocentric and Afrikan Holistic Health movement
Decolonizing the body
Animal liberation
Raising vegan children
This volume will be loving and open-minded. I am not going to accept media that is sexist, homophobic or anti-trans. This volume should be a safe artistic space for all black men, but in particular, marginalized black males such as sexuality minorities (black males who are gay, for example) and black men living with disabilities.

You can email me your abstracts (approximately 2 paragraphs) at the email address sistahvegan(at)gmail (dot) com by August 1 2012.
