Vegan Celebrity Chef Ahki Taylor is offering to share her expertise in plant-based cooking via a free workshop exclusively for Black women this Sunday, June 7th at 1 pm EST. called Veganism for Black Women.
Businesses, entrepreneurs and citizens alike are finding different ways to uplift the Black community, and this is Chef Ahki’s own way of doing that.
The workshop is hosted by Women of Color Healing Retreats, and their website explains what will be highlighted in the session, including;
- The importance of Black Women transitioning into a vegan lifestyle
- The history of food for black women and people
- Implementing more vegan food into your daily lives
- The ways food can be used as medicine for menstrual cramps, fibroids, and the reproduction system, and an overall way to learn about how to take care of our health and wellness.
It’s not the first time Women of Color Healing Retreats have done this, they usually host paid workshops for their members, but Ahki noted that she didn’t want anyone left out of this conversation due to potential financial constraints.
In a statement to VegNews, Ahki explained why she felt it was so important to share her knowledge without charging, saying, “[It] is going to be completely free of charge to the public because veganism isn’t accessible in the Black community and we find it imperative to spread this information.”
