Afro-Vegan Beauty is an online resource and print magazine dedicated to empowering women of color through self-care education while promoting a healthy plant-based lifestyle. We aim to increase cosmetic literacy and food knowledge among people of color so we may successfully navigate a beauty industry powered by European standards.

As a Chicago native from the Southside of the city, I’m grateful to come from an era when children playing outside and family dinners at the dining room table were considered a staple in our community. We are in a different time now; the age of information. Social media shares and the dire need to be the first to post new “news” has taken over. Media is diluted with false information and sensationalized content now more than ever. Here in the states, the primary goal of mainstream media has always been to raise consumerism and profit from our lack of proper knowledge especially when it comes to self-care, finance, and nutrition.
I’ve been plant-based for four years and in that short time I’ve learned about more than just the food we eat. It’s important that we ask questions and be diligent about informing ourselves and the people around us. My personal quest for plant-based knowledge has impacted my everyday purchases and practices outside of food. It’s also affected how I address the concerns of my lifestyle and upscale clientele.
Afro-Vegan Beauty is a space developed to share knowledge about plant-based living as well as self-care while creating more conscious consumers. I wanted to create a judgement-free zone where vegans, non-vegans and everyone in between can learn more about wellness, beauty and the power of community.
