Los Angeles-based spoken-word artist Donald Vincent, who performed at the Compassion Arts and Culture & Animals Festival in October 2017, received a grant to produce “Vegan Paradise,” a recorded album of cruelty-free poetry verse and lyrics inspired by popular and influential hip-hop. He writes:
The project intends to meet the need of changing the conversation of what veganism is and stands for. Through poetry, a reader is able to follow the journey of veganism and a cruelty-free lifestyle that is not heavy handed. Through the recorded audio of these poems, the listener is able to understand what it truly means to live a vegan lifestyle.
