Starr Carrington is an activist, director and community organizer for plant-based, vegan and wellness education that centers a Black healing experience.
Through their platform, Black Feminist Vegan, Starr provides vegan food justice resources to support Black community as we heal our relationship to veganism, plant-based living, wellness and compassion.
My vegan journey began abruptly in August 2017, and BlackFeministVegan came to life just three months later.
I noticed a huge gap in existing vegan media that complicated a Black feminist's (or Black person's) ability to see veganism as an intentional, necessary, revolutionary practice.
So, in an effort to fill that gap, I started out in this game where I plan to end -- as a Black feminist voice of veganism, and a vegan voice of Black feminism.
My essay on “Food Justice and Race in the U.S.” was published by Sanctuary Publishers in Food Justice: A Primer. This essay reflects on the role and ability of social constructs to legitimize environmental injustice.
I facilitate workshops and classes on the following topics:
Veganism as a Practice for Black Feminism Veganism as a Practice for Black Liberation Theory Unifying Black Liberation Land Healing through Generations How Veganism Addresses Medical & Food Apartheid Systemic Oppression through Food Systems Jezebels and Dairy Cows: Exploiting Femininity Dissecting Food Landscapes Liberation through Community Food Systems Resisting Single-Issue Activism: Holistic Approaches to Anti-Oppression
