About Armani

I am an Africana Studies scholar, cultural food and health equity advocate, and writer. As a cultural food and health equity advocate, I use my education, research, and experiences in the fields of Africana Studies, Anthropology, and Public Health Nutrition to reimagine food pedagogies surrounding Black women in the American South.

Black feminist theory, Decolonial theory, Black food geographies, Plant-based lifestyles, Food pedagogies, Black women’s wellness, Urban ethnography in the American South, Community-based methodologies

Research Background

In my research, I take a decolonial, life-sustaining and loving lens to document the food geographies and epistemologies of black women navigating food apartheid in urban landscapes in the American South. My research further focuses on plant-based food economies and culturally-valued wellness in southern foodscapes.
