Veganism of Color: Decentering Whiteness in Human and Nonhuman Liberation Overview

Forget everything you’ve heard from mainstream white veganism. This isn’t a book about single-issue advocacy through the most privileged of lenses. Veganism of Color: Decentering Whiteness in Human and Nonhuman Liberation is a compilation of writings from seldom-heard voices of color. These are the voices drowned out by the same white noise that systematically oppresses us all-vegan or not.

This community-led effort is a call from Vegans of Color to People of Color to decenter whiteness and work towards dismantling a form of oppression that, although very different, interconnects with our own.

Embracing a social justice spectrum that is aware of, and working against, all forms of supremacy is a must if we are going to achieve true liberation from systems of oppression for ourselves and other marginalized communities.

Editorial Reviews

“I definitely recommend this book. It’s a short, easy read, and as a white, middle-class vegan, I found it especially helpful in emphasizing ways that I can be complicit in oppression through my vegan activism if I am not attentive to intersectionality and the unique experiences of vegans of color. I’m vegan for the animals – but I’m also vegan because I believe veganism is one part of creating a more just world for humans and animals alike. This book is a valuable resource in my activism and advocacy.” – Beth Quick, Vegan CNY. “Book Review.” 3 March 2020
