Aph Ko got tired of hearing that eating vegan was something only white people did. So in 2015, she created a list of 100 black vegans for a website. It included pioneering figures like Dick Gregory and Coretta Scott King and younger, less famous writers, filmmakers, cooks and activists.
"Black Vegans Step Out, for Their Health and Other Causes" is from the November 28, 2017 Lifestyle section of The New York Times. It was written by Kim Severson and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
