Fatness and Fat Acceptance in the African American Community (Talk “Fat” Session 3)

Dr. Sharrell D. Luckett, Dr. Jonathan Lassiter, and Latoya Shauntay Snell

Talk “FAT” Sessions are events where all things “fat” are discussed from a range of different perspectives and experiences. Fat bodies and struggles with size and identity are centered in these exciting conversations.

Does the African American community suffer less from weight discrimination? Are full figured and voluptuous bodies more desirable and acceptable? Join psychologist Dr. Jonathan Lassiter, actress and author Sharrell D. Luckett (YoungGiftedandFat), and HOKA ONE ONE athlete, Latoya Shauntay Snell, as they tackle the myths around fatness and fat acceptance in the African American community and discuss self-care initiatives that promote healthy minds and bodies.

A book signing follows the event.
