Summary "In 2010, Lantern published Sistah Vegan, a landmark anthology edited by A. Breeze Harper that highlighted for the first time the diversity of vegan women of color's response to gender, class, body image, feminism, spirituality, the environment, diet, andnonhuman animals. Now, a decade later, its companion volume, Brotha Vegan, unpacks the lived experience of black men on veganism, fatherhood, politics, sexuality, gender, health, popular culture, spirituality, food, animal advocacy, the environment, andthe many ways that veganism is lived and expressed within the Black community in the United States. Edited by Omowale Adewale-founder of Black Vegfest, and one of the leading voices for racial and economic justice, animal rights, and black solidarity-Brotha Vegan includes interviews with and articles by folks such as Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Doc (of Hip Hop is Green), chef Bryant Terry, physicians Anteneh Roba and Milton Mills, DJ Cavem, Stic of Dead Prez, Kimatni Rawlins, and many others. At once inspiring, challenging, and illuminating, Brotha Vegan illustrates the many ways it is possible to be vegan and reveals the leading edge of a "veganized" consciousness for social renewal"-- Provided by publisher.
