    So far this book has been mind blowing I consider myself a socially conscious person yet I've never uestioned my consumption of sugar or coffee Reading the chapter written by Breeze Harper was eye opening to say the least Hearing other black vegan women's perspectives on their lives as vegans has been refreshing especially in light of the loud voices of middle class white vegans

    I was uite excited to delve into Sistah Vegan to immerse myself within diverse voices on the margins of veganism I wish the collection of essays lived up to my expectations I found some essays well written informative and powerful but most were rather repetitive both internally and with respect to the other essays In this way the voices within the book were not as diverse as I'd hoped I found the book relatively unchall

    Reading a book filled entirely with Black vegan women invested in discussing not only animal rights but also racism classism environmental justice and food justice was super validating for me as a person who's told all to often that I'm not Black enough Too bad it was penned by mostly academic cis women many of whom seemed far too invested in ad hoc Afrocentric rituals based on the sanctity of the womb and some other gender essentialist c

    This book was cool in establishing a feeling of hey there's different people just like me But it did little to bring the real life of veganism into its pages It's a series of essays about cultural experience I found the Brown Vegan blog to be much relatable in terms of finding out how veganism can work within yo

R 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 everyo. I recently took the 30 day vegan challenge beginning August 1 2017 I asked people on Instagram friendsfollowers for information suggestions recipes etc An old high school classmate who has embraced the vegan lifestyle immediately responded and suggested I read Sistah Vegan Food Identity Health and Society Black Female Vegans Speak by A Breeze Harper I purchased the audible version I like to listen to books as I commute to and fro work and I can honestly start by saying I WAS NOT ready Sistah Vegan is an anthology of essays and poetry on the black female thought regarding veganism This book clearly depicted perspectives of veganism I did not know existed It was undoubtedly an educational experience that I enjoyedAhisma veganism environmental veganism health reasons veganism veganism to fight the oppression of racism veganism and body consciousness speciesism I was blind I had no knowledge I had no idea there were so many levels to veganismI definitely would recommend this book to anyone going vegan because it is such an interesting educational experience I was disappointed by the narration of the book because there was only ONE narratorOne narrator performing each piece added a mundane feeling to listening experience Some of the perspectives were so passionate and strong that the narrators performance took away from the conviction of feelings being portrayed I m not saying the narrator was bad I am saying that the inflections and tone of her voice did not match each piece Never the less the learning was exceptional That being said below are my top 7 moments of learning from listening to the audible version of Sistah Vegan1 Chapter 4 Delicia Dunham This chapter is a prime reflection that one narrator cannot truly reflect the voice of the writer Delicia to me sounds almost militant to me when she describes her thoughts on veganism There fire in her passion to be vegan so much so that she came for Russell Simmons She tells the reader in so many that Russell refers to himself as vegan yet allegedly manufactures leather sneakers I have yet to research whether or not this is true but when I heard the words come through the audible I was likeDid she just call out Russell Simmons Yes she just called out Russell Simmons 2 Speciesism If this is your first time hearing that word then possibly you felt as confused as I did I chose to take the 30 day vegan challenge for health reasons I have never been a huge environmentalist or animal rights person but the I learn about how animals are treated for the mass production of meat I can t help but feel a bit sympathetic This term speciesism was and still remains new to me I don t know how to fully embrace the term and at this point in time because I grew up in Christian faith and was always taught that man was given dominion over the earth However I don t know how to walk away from the term speciesism because even if man was given dominion over the earth it doesn t mean he has to mistreat and kill animals for financial gain 3 Chapter 18 Indian Gravyyou mean there is a gravy made without flour and water I not a major foodie my palate is limited to a small variety of foods so honestlyBut gravy made with onions tomatoes garlic and other spices does sound appealing to me I ll have to try it4 Chapter 3 Most Native American Asians and Africans Americans are primarily lactose intolerant than white people I definitely didn t know about this but it just leads to me to another uestions5 Chapter 1 Cows are fed a protein mixture containing other ground cows6 Chapter 21 by Adama her father tells her You better eat everything on your got damn plate or I ll beat your got damn ass This was said to Adama after she realized meat was an animal and thereby she told her mother that she no longer wanted to eat meat Her mother told her father and he berated Adama at the dinner table Those words made my heart break a little bit because of this common forceful nature of African American parenting is not unfamiliar in black culture Her father s gesture was seemingly stemmed from misunderstanding but it felt as if it possibly crucified a significant portion of a Adama s natural intuition to do something she felt was right for her body Ofcourse she eventually became vegan because she was a contributor to this book but this incident still had me all in my feelings y all I felt sad I didn t like it7 Chapter 20 Why is your pussy so sweet Ok I really like it when books make me laugh out loud but I have learned I especially love when books make me go Oh my what did they just sayFrom the research I ve done on this journey I ve heard that veganism can eliminate body odor but I hadn t heard much on its affects to bodily juices After being a bit shocked I just about died with laughter over this oneSo there you have it These are a few of the remarkable moments I experienced reading Sistah Vegan I liked the book I believed the information was a great learning experience For various reasons I don t believe I can feel the same about food again I would have given this book 4 starts but I am taking one away just because of the one narrator
