Call for Papers: “critical perspectives and arts coming from a black male vegan consciousness”

By Jasmin Singer — October 03, 2012

While catching up on some of my favorite blogs the other day, I learned from Ashley Maier over at Connect the Dots Movement of an exciting opportunity: “A. Breeze Harper Invites Black Male Vegans to Contribute to a New Publication.” Seeing as how the book that Breeze edited, Sistah Vegan, is beside my bed, currently being devoured each night — on top of the fact that I am a fan of her unique contribution to the worlds of social justice — I decided to post this call for papers. It’s for a “sibling project” to Sistah Vegan, entitled — aptly — Brotha Vegan.

The call for papers explains:

This anthology isn’t only about veganism. It’s actually critical perspectives and arts coming from a black male vegan consciousness; black men/men of African descent living in North America. 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:

  1. Hip hop culture and vegan activism
  2. Environmental and nutritional racism
  3. Meat eating as a “masculine” stereotype
  4. Class and food access
  5. Structural racism’s effects on food access
  6. “Obesity” and diabetes in the African American community
  7. Access to clean water as a race, class, and gender issue.
  8. PETA
  9. Going Green; green jobs; green economy
  10. Fatherhood
  11. Teenhood
  12. Ageism
  13. Sexism
  14. Food sovereignty
  15. Occupy movement
  16. Experiencing life as a black male who is queer and vegan
  17. Disabilities studies and race
  18. Prison industrial complex
  19. Afrocentricism
  20. Spirituality and consumption
  21. Critical analysis of Afrocentric and Afrikan Holistic Health movement
  22. Decolonizing the body
  23. Animal liberation
  24. Raising vegan children
Breeze explains more about the project in the video below, which I encourage you to share far and wide:
