BLACK VEGANS ROCK: Inspirational Nina C. Brewton shares how clean eating veganism made profound impact on her health and relationship with food

The idea of going vegan was never something that I imagined as being realistic considering my urban, Midwestern upbringing. I, like many other African-Americans, had grown up with the thinking that a vegan lifestyle was a luxury - exclusive to white culture and unrealistic to the life I lived in one of the growing food deserts of Wichita, KS. In the early 2000s, I became a vegetarian after seeing a documentary about the treatment of animals by commercial “farming”. I was disgusted by what I…See More

FEATURE: BLACK VEGANS ROCK - Family man Phillip talks losing a live-saving 160lbs

Before I became vegan, I weighed 350 pounds and I didn't really exercise or take my health all that seriously. I played video games and slept a lot. I'm not trying to say that all people who are 350 pounds have my experience or are 'lazy' (especially because of the body positive movement that's happening today), I am only speaking from my own standpoint. I felt like I was being a bad role model to my children because I was teaching them that exercise and eating a nutritious diet weren't…See More

OP-ED: An Open Letter to J. Cole: Your Music Helped Me Recover From My Depression

My name is Jasmin. It just so happens 2014 was one of the worst years of my life. I had already been dealing with major depressive disorder for almost several years at the time. However 2014 I had it extremely bad. Mind numbing bad. Thank God I eventually found my way out of that deep dark hole but it took me awhile. Depression is not an easy illness to deal with. I didn't even know who I was anymore for a while. I couldn't sleep at night. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I couldn't even get…See More
