It is the last day of VeganMoFo 2013, the vegan month of food where vegan bloggers around the world committed to posting every day (or at least every business day) for the month of September. I am happy to say that I made it every single day. I enjoyed the process and I learned a lot about posting more regularly. I don't promise to continue to post EVERY day but I do plan to post as often as possible.
On this final VeganMoFo post I share a video I made at the 2013 Atlanta Collard Green and Cultural Festival. People often think that there aren't many Black/Afrikan vegetarians or vegans. There is the presumption that it is a white thing. This just isn't so.
That is why I created this site. To help connect us together, Black/Afrikan vegetarians, vegans, and those who want to learn more. To give us a place to talk to each other and support and learn from each other. We don't have to feel alone or isolated.
I am committed to building a nation of Black/Afrikan vegetarians who are saying NO to big business that is knowingly leading us down the path to the destruction of our communities, to disease, to disability, to obesity, to oppression, to deception and to early death.
I invite all people of Afrikan descent to join the food revolution.
Do you know of other Black/Afrikans you'd like to invite to join the Food Revolution? Share this post and help spread the word.
