10 Million Black Vegan Women w/ Tracye McQuirter

Update: 2021-12-04


We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Tracye McQuirter, MPH, back to the podcast this week to discuss her remarkable program: 10 Million Black Vegan Women. Initially launched last year as 10,000 Black Vegan Women, Tracye is back after she realized she had been thinking too small about how many people this accessible, online program could reach. So, after exceeding expectations by helping 15,000 Black women go vegan the first time around, this time her improved and expanded plan will help 1 million Black women adopt a plant-based lifestyle every year for the next 10 years. In discussing this not-for-profit program, much of which will be available for free, Tracye talks about why Black women are in the midst of a health crisis and how a shift in diet can positively impact so many chronic health conditions.  But her goals are not just related to individual health. She also shares why the Black Lives Matter movement has played a role in incentivizing people to think seriously about adopting a plant-based lifestyle and how changing one's diet can open one up to so many social justice issues, including animal rights.

Tracye McQuirter is a vegan change agent, award-winning public health nutritionist, speaker, and best-selling author of "By Any Greens Necessary," the first vegan diet book for Black women. In 2020, Tracye created the 10,000 Black Vegan Women program, which encourages women to go vegan for 21 days and experience the extraordinary health benefits of the plant-based lifestyle. Tracye was a health advisor for the Black Women’s Health Imperative, an advisor for the Spelman College Wellness Revolution, an adjunct professor at the University of the District of Columbia Center for Nutrition, Diet, and Health, and the program director of the first federally funded vegan nutrition program.
