When it comes to combating the oppression of each living person on this earth - human and non - b kolije is unrelenting.
As an intersectional vegan feminist and gender non-conforming person (she/they pronouns), b is well aware of the abuse that takes place at the intersection of race and gender; as well as sexuality, size, appearance, class, ability, and skin tone. Having lived only 20 minutes away from Ferguson, Missouri when Darren Wilson killed 18 year-old Michael Brown, b was thrusted into a life of social justice in her early twenties. Since that moment, she has never looked back.
b, filmmaker and chef, runs a black vegan feminist food blog and YouTube channel (herbanistic) where she works to decenter whiteness in the realm of veganism. Every week, she features a delicious 100% plant-based dish to demystify the concept of living a life free from animal by-products to Black people. Also, b writes about topics concerning the relationship between race, gender, class, and speciesism.
