Meaning of future black woman as vegan, reproduction of self

Update: Before watching the video about “Meaning of future black woman as vegan, reproduction of self” I just wanted to say that if my work has benefited you, or you have enjoyed watching my critical race scholarship and/or health advice over the past few years, I’m wondering if you can return a favor.

My fellowship to pursue critical race and critical vegan studies at the doctoral level was not renewed for 2011-2012, through University of California, Davis. I would like to finish my PhD and need some help. I know the goal may seem overwhelming, but I have about a combined support network/friends/followers of 1000 people (through Facebook, blog subscribers, and Twitter followers). If you could spare $10 to $25 a piece, then this goal could be met I think.

UPDATE: As of June 13, 2011:

Donated: $2700

Needed for completion of goal: $7,300

Deadline: September 2011 (so I Can register for 2011-2012 academic year)


In this video I talk about a new publication of mine in the book “Black Imagination” and how I utilize a critical feminist vegan analysis of the heroine Lilith in Octavia Butler’s Dawn.
