My name is Starr, I use they/them pronouns, and I am the radiant voice behind Black Feminist Vegan. (Hey!!! Thanks for being here!)
I am a food justice activist, educator and organizer from Northern Virginia.
My vegan journey began abruptly in August 2017, and BlackFeministVegan came to life just three months later. I noticed a huge gap in existing vegan media that complicated a Black feminist’s (or Black person’s) ability to see veganism as an intentional, necessary, revolutionary practice.
So, in an effort to fill that gap, I started out in this game where I plan to end — as a Black feminist voice of veganism, and a vegan voice of Black feminism.
My essay on “Food Justice and Race in the U.S.” was published by Sanctuary Publishers in Food Justice: A Primer. This essay reflects on the role and ability of social constructs to legitimize environmental injustice.
