The Invisible Vegan Screening & Vegan Pop-up

“The Invisible Vegan,” a new documentary that sheds light on the history of “unhealthy dietary patterns in the African-American community” and the emerging vegan movement, is now available to watch online.

The independent film, co-directed by activists Jasmine and Kenny Leyva, features appearances from a wide variety of celebrities and experts, including Cedric the Entertainer, NBA champion John Salley, 11-year-old activist Genesis Butler, scholar Dr. Breeze Harper, and physician Milton Mills.

“The Invisible Vegan” was created to explore the African-American diet through a historical and contemporary lens, such as how slavery, socio-economic inequalities, and the rise of Big Food in the 20th century have had a negative impact on health.
