The first event To Be Vegan & Black has ever put together was one actually inspired by home; the homes that many Black millennials recall from their youth. Things like wicker chairs and bulky electronics were skillfully added to the first Well Seasoned booth curation, inspiring nostalgia in even those who walked by. It was important to the Vegan & Black team that this feeling was present so that the possibilities of how Black culture and Veganism could create new cultural avenues would not only be imagined but also experienced in the real world. Below you'll find snapshots of the experience, taken by Ron B, the first artist to curate Well Seasoned.
We are full of joy because To Be Vegan and Black now has its own, permanent home with more than enough space available to tell stories and share valuable information on Black Veganism. February (Black History Month) marks our anniversary, and in 2023 we are celebrating one year with a new visual identity, website, and the introduction of new projects and blog posts. We appreciate our community following us here from our landing page on Like Mom's Only Vegan website. Now that we've expanded, we hope that after taking a look around, you feel the inviting energy and will also make this your new home for all things "vegan for the culture".
