By Popular Demand. In-depth discussion of Dr. Sabrina Strings Book:
Fearing the Black Body: The Racial Origins for Fat Phobia


This ain’t any ole book discussion, y’all, It’s a chance to get real and get clear about fatphobia, diet culture, and race. 


Diet culture is racist.

I have the receipts.


Join me in this 6-week gathering to go deep and do better. 


The book will be the foundation of our discussion. However, I will be augmenting the discussion areas of the book with additional research, journal articles, current events and peer/industry insights on how race/weight/science is impacting the current state of sickness and health.  


The goals of these discussion are to:

  • Understand the twists and turns of the history of fatphobia.

  • Learn the pseudo medical foundations and the patriarchal attitudes and techniques of diet culture.     

  • Acknowledge how the overt racism of weight/race science impacts both historic and contemporary cultures. 

  • Discuss how the legacy of racist fatphobia continues to impact our current views on weight, wellness, fat, ob*sity, and how it drives the insidiousness of diet culture.


We start September 1st and will gather weekly via Zoom on Thursdays at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. Pacific) for 60-75 minutes.
