For me, cooking is a healing process. My recipes are inspired by the Black women across the diaspora whose food continues to nourish and connect our communities … gather your people. Break bread together. Talk about the pleasure, talk about the pain.
In this reading group, sisterwoman vegan will introduce participants to her intersectional vegan cooking practice through a curated selection from her personal collection of influential Black literature and a light menu of vegan soul food sharing plates. sisterwoman vegan will also present a limited-edition zine, produced specially for the event.
This reading group forms part of The Politics of Pleasure Family Reunion
, an all-day event for Black women to explore pleasure as generative of creativity and community, and as fundamentally linked to their humanity.
