Summary

Sistah Vegan is a series of narratives, critical essays, poems, and reflections from a diverse community of North American black-identified vegans. Collectively, these activists are de-colonizing their bodies and minds via whole-foods veganism. By kicking junk-food habits, the more than 30 contributors all show the way toward longer, stronger, and healthier lives. Suffering from type-2 diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure, and overweight need not be the way women of color are doomed to be victimized and live out their mature lives. There are healthy alternatives. Sistah Vegan is not about preaching veganism or vegan fundamentalism. Rather, the 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 that all go 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. It calls upon all of us to make radical changes for the betterment of ourselves, our planet, and by extension everyone.

Thank you

This was extremely eye opening even as a brotha vegan. At times the narrator was tough to stay awake for, but i got thru it and learned amazing info along the way which is the ultimate goal

Insightful, inspiring, and

This book hits on many aspects surrounding veganism...mainstream perception, individual purpose, etc. Whether you're vegan or not, this book provokes re-evaluation within the reader through the eyes and hearts of many individual accounts.

A must read for all.

An exquisite cultural analysis on many topics. Well composed, and full of substance. Please do yourself a favor and give it a listen, maybe a few times.

All over the place

I really thought it was all over the place. Sometimes good info, sometimes rambling, sometimes just radical without any real substance. Maybe my expectations were mislead by the title and I expected a lot more discussion about veganism, advice, recipe, experiences.... it was just not for me.

Interesting but a bit elitist

This was a good attempt at allowing the voices of educated Black women vegans to be heard. However, I, as a new Black woman vegan, could not get through the book. Some chapters were way too preachy and actually elitist sounding. I felt judged as a new vegan, as if I were not actually a vegan yet until I completely think a certain way. I am so glad that this was not the first book I listened to about veganism, because if it was, I would never have tried!
