Jasmine C. Leyva AKA The Invisible Vegan Actress + Filmmaker // A Powerful Black Voice in the Vegan Community

Jasmine is a filmmaker and actress based in Los Angeles. In 2019, Jasmine and Kenny Leyva released their own feature-length independent documentary, The Invisible Vegan, a film that chronicles Jasmine’s personal experience with plant-based eating.

The film also explains how plant-based eating is directly linked to African roots and how African-American eating habits have been de-based by a chain of oppression stemming from slavery, economic inequality, and modern agribusiness. It features Cedric the Entertainer, John Salley (of the NBA), Dr. Milton Mills, Tracy of By Any Greens, Genesis Butler and many more.

Over the past seven years, Leyva has committed herself to veganism.

We loved chatting with Jasmine. She’s a charismatic, hilarious, beautiful woman inside and out with a strong message to share, and the ability to grasp onto her passion and take action.

...Listen in, as we chat about her documentary, her vegan story, her morning routine, the underrepresentation of the Black Community within the vegan movement, and the history of soul food.
Plus, she gives some important advice to those who don’t know exactly how to take action within the Black Lives Matter conversation.

Follow her @theinvisiblevegan on Instagram, and makes sure you rent or buy her documentary at www.theinvisiblevegan.com.
