Tracye and Marya McQuirter, founders of Black Vegetarians

Black Vegetarians is an inspiring organization that “explores the environmental, ethical and health impact of our food choices. We also profile people, organizations and events all sharing vegetarianism in creative ways, and we provide a host of great recipes and resources.” Tracye McQuirter, a health educator with a Master’s in public health nutrition, and Marya McQuirter, who holds a Ph.D. in history, will tell us about the history of soul food, the health of Black people in the U.S., their ideas about how to build healthy communities, and the reasons they’re both so passionate about vegetarianism. We’ll also learn more about the Black Vegetarian Societies across America.
