Check out SoulVegFolk, the newest Black Vegetarian social networking website! It’s basically like MySpace, if MySpace worked and was populated by awesome Black vegetarian, vegan, raw, and fruitarian people. The site was launched less than a month ago, so there aren’t tons of members, but there are encouraging signs of social life.
SoulVegFolk was started by superhandsome food justice activist and chef Bryant Terry. Terry is co-author of Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen and, in 2001, he founded b-healthy!, a five-year initiative created to raise awareness about food justice issues and empower low income youth. Ah! If only he were vegan.
Correction: Bryant Terry inspired the creation of SoulVegFolk and supports the site by providing home page blog posts and recipes. The site was actually created by Nitevison and Blactivegan, two vegan Brooklynites who wanted to connect, learn from, and share resources with other Black folks who were leading a veggie lifestyle.
