Racism as Zoological Witchcraft
A Guide to Getting Out
In this scintillating combination of critical race theory, social commentary, veganism, and gender analysis, media studies scholar Aph Ko offers a compelling vision of a reimagined social justice movement marked by a deconstruction of the conceptual framework that keeps activists silo-ed fighting their various oppressions—and one another. Through a subtle and extended examination of Jordan Peele’s hit 2017 movie Get Out
, Ko shows the many ways that white supremacist notions of animality and race exist through the consumption and exploitation of flesh. She demonstrates how a critical historical and social understanding of anti-Blackness can provide the pathway to genuine liberation.
Highly readable, richly illustrated, and full of startling insights, Racism as Zoological Witchcraft
is a brilliant example of the emerging discipline of Black veganism by one of its leading voices.
