Author and activist Aph Ko explains her novel and insightful ideas on race and animality to foster multidimensional liberation for all human races and animal species, based on her book Racism as Zoological Witchcraft: A Guide to Getting Out (Lantern Press: 2019) (Jordan Peele's movie Get Out is an inspiration here). In this 26-minute "In Tune to Nature" Podcast, host Carrie Freeman asks Aph to explain concepts from the book, such as how racism is a form of "zoological witchcraft" where "white supremacy uses both minoritized bodies and animality to communicate and reinscribe a mythical fantasy of racial superiority" (p. 99). She also explains the value of concurrently fighting racism and animal oppression (as a form of animal oppression) through an "afro-zoological resistance" or "multidimensional liberation" movement. Her advice is pertinent to anyone interested in racial justice, animal liberation, or vegan advocacy.
