Here are some helpful resources if you're looking for some more information, whether you're interested in recipes, health, or scholarly resources centering on animal oppression, racial oppression, and social justice. We have some different websites that you can check out, in addition to books, films, and articles. We will be adding to this page each time we learn of a new resource. If you have any suggestions for resources, send an email to info [at] blackvegansrock.com. (Some of these resources are from non-black people and tackle subjects that relate to food justice, racial justice, and different articulations of "the human." and "the animal.").
