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.
