Food activist Karen Washington was interviewed in the Guardian recently regarding racism in the food industry. I thought the timing was right to discuss her thoughts and the thoughts of so many people like Karen who are doing great things to promote healthy food for everyone.
First, here is the link to her article in the Guardian. I recommend that you read the whole article because she has some terrific insights about this issue.
This podcast called “the racist sandwich” talks about the way we consume food as a political part of our culture.
I found this annotated bibliography on structural racism present in the US food system.
There’s a free online book called: Unshared bounty. How structural racism contributes to the creation and persistence of food deserts
