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:

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.
Going Green; green jobs; green economy
Food sovereignty
Occupy movement
Experiencing life as a black male who is queer and vegan
Disabilities studies and race
Prison industrial complex
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.
