How Whiteness and ‘Law and Order’ Can Shape ‘Cruelty-Free’

Over the past few weeks, there have been inquiries for me to talk about intersections of systemic racism and plant-based food culture (a.k.a veganism)

I would like to share a public lecture below that I gave at University of Chicago in 2017. It’s about 27 minutes long. Though this lecture occurred five years ago, the concepts I address continue to be incredibly useful to apply as plant based commodities culture in the USA gains momentum– especially within the food tech startup space in which a majority of well-intended leaders continue a type of strategic ignorance around how a racial caste system over the last 500 years impacts ‘ethical food’ start-up business models, intentions, and vc funding.

If what I speak about in this video piques your interest, you can check out my current writing projects and of course I’m also available for keynote talks and presentations at My Fall 2022 through Spring 2023 speaking schedule is filling up fast.
