“Race is a construct…the problem is a white supremacist framing of what is healthy.” -Breeze Harper

On this edition of the Secret Ingredient the secret ingredient is Whiteness. Join Raj Patel, Tom Philpott, and Rebecca McInroy as they sit down with Dr. Amie Breeze Harper, author of Scars: A Black Lesbian Experience in Rural White New England, as well as the creator of the Sistah Vegan project and blog, www.sistahvegan.com, as they discuss what it really means to be vegan, how “whiteness has been a part of every movement in this country,” and how Harper is combating the inter-sectional racism that occurs even in the most ethically driven of foodscapes such as veganism.
