Did you know that Dr. Amie Breeze Harper is working on Sistah Vegan Volume 2? Sistah Vegan is a groundbreaking anthology published in 2010 by Lantern Books. The anthology is composed of Black women identified vegans who reflect on food, identity, health, and society.
Dr. Harper is looking for submissions for Sistah Vegan Volume 2, tentatively titled The Praxis of Justice in an Era of Black Lives Matter. She writes:
"For this volume, we envision deeply critical engagements by Black identified vegans who are doing social justice, food justice, environmental justice, etc. from an intersectional framework. The volume will centralize the significance of living during the era of Black Lives Matter. How are you, as a Black identified vegan, engaged in the continuum of dismantling systemic racism (and other 'isms') that affect Black people throughout the world?"
For this volume, Dr. Harper is seeking: Black identified vegans (of all gender backgrounds) who employ intersectional frameworks for justice (i.e. anti-racism, anti-ableism, anti-speciesism, LGBTQ rights, Black Liberation); someone who does not frame veganism or Black Liberation within the often mainstream and confining narrative that is always always cissexist, heteronormative, fat shaming, ableist, and classist to name a few.
Dr. Harper is accepting: (1) Critical essays, poems, or narratives of no more than 6000 words; (2) Artwork/design ideas for the cover.
Extended deadline for abstracts: September 1, 2016
Deadline for final submissions: February 15, 2017
