Octobers book

Aphro-ism by Aph Ko and Syl Ko

Essays on Pop Culture, Feminism and Black Veganism from Two Sisters

In this lively, accessible, and provocative collection, Aph and Syl Ko provide new theoretical frameworks on race, advocacy for nonhuman animals, and feminism. Using popular culture as a point of reference for their critiques, the Ko sisters engage in a groundbreaking analysis of the compartmentalized nature of contemporary social movements, present new ways of understanding interconnected oppressions, and offer conceptual ways of moving forward expressive of Afrofuturism and black veganism.

We're super excited to announce our new monthly online book club! 

With everything going on we wanted to create an opportunity for us to connect and explore new topics together. If you followed our Vegan Social Centre - HeartCure Collective - we used to run our Book Club there, so we're super excited to release this online version!
