Below is the video of the talk I gave at Pomona College on April 17 2015 for Food Week. I read from my new book Scars: A Black Lesbian Experience in Rural White New England.


I do a reading of the food objects in the book and how they can tell us about racial and class power dynamics in an era of neoliberal whiteness. I also mention our conference I’m putting on that is online and interactive, The Vegan Praxis of Black Lives Matters.

If you want to learn more about neoliberal whiteness, I suggest reading Marc Lombardo’s Economies of Whiteness and Roland Barthes’ essay in Displacing Whiteness.
