Tabitha Brown

If you are unfamiliar with who Tabitha Brown is, you are seriously missing out on a beautiful soul, passionate influencer, and awesome Black vegan! 

Tabitha adopted a vegan lifestyle after battling chronic pain and fatigue for many years. Back in 2017, she shared her first video review about a Whole Foods vegan BLT. Her spirit and spunk spread like wildfire through the internet. 

Shortly after, she was hired as a brand ambassador by the company to travel the country. She then created a Tiktok in 2020 where she shared more vegan recipes and life advice. She blew up on the platform as she touched hearts and influenced others to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Since then, she has made great waves across all major social media platforms. She was signed to an agency, made an appearance on Ellen, came out with her own signature spice in collaboration with McCormick, and even recently launched a Youtube cartoon series, among many other things.

Tabitha Brown has the ability to educate her followers through a compassionate and thoughtful approach. Through her non-threatening nature, many non-vegans make remarks that they can’t pass up her recipes, and they’re always delicious.

Jazz coined this name because she was mad about a lot of things. She was mad about all of the injustices in the world that most turn a blind eye to or don’t even know about. Jazz created her platform to educate the Black community on veganism through culture. She speaks greatly on how systemic racism and discrimination are inextricably tied to the animal agriculture industry. By supporting these industries, we as individuals are supporting the very thing we are all trying to fight against.
