On June 7, celebrity vegan chef Sepsenahki Aahkhu (known professionally as “Chef Ahki”) will teach a free online workshop about veganism for Black women. Hosted by the Women of Color Healing Retreats, the workshop will highlight the importance of the history of food for Black women, ways food can be used as medicine by women, and how Black women can implement veganism into their lives. 

While the retreat center’s workshops are created exclusively for members of its paid virtual community, founder Satya Satya thought it was imperative that everyone had access to this information, so she decided to offer the workshop for free. “The workshop is going to be completely free of charge to the public because veganism isn’t accessible in the Black community and we find it imperative to spread this information,” Satya told VegNews.
