Featured: Scars of Suffering and Healing: A Black Feminist Perspective on Intersections of Oppression
This is the talk I gave at the Activist's Table Conference, which took place at UC Berkeley on March 15, 2014. It was sponsored by the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition. I talk about Sistah Vegan and also read from and analyze my newest book, Scars, a social fiction that intersects issues of racism, internalized homophobia, and speciesism to name a few.
