Blast from the past! ~ As I’m learning myself with a new documentary about to debut, films can take awhile, and when they’re ready, OMG, it’s like giving birth. Back in August of 2017, the show opened with a chat with Jasmine Levya, director of The Invisible Vegan, an important film featuring Milton Mills, MD, John Salley, Cedric the Entertainer, Tracye McQuirter, MPH, and looking at health concerns in the African-American community and plant-based solutions. You can rent or purchase the film on Vimeo, or if you or someone you know does not have the means to pay, The Invisible Vegan is also on YouTube in pieces so the information is available for everyone.
