This week we’re joined by Amie Breeze Harper, PhD candidate at UC Davis, blogger, founder of the Sistah Vegan Project and editor of the recent anthology, Sistah Vegan: Black Female Vegans Speak on Food, Identity, Health and Society.
In this interview, Harper talks with us about her research, specifically the intersections between critical food geographies and critical race theories. In particular, she is interested in how racialized consciousness affects dietary consumption philosophies. She draws heavily on Queen Afua and raises questions about food accessibility in communities of colour. She argues, quoting Queen Afua, that eating from “the corporate kitchen” can and does further oppress people of colour, both in and outside the borders of North America.
