Soul Food Junkies
Filmmaker Byron Hurt explores the upsides and downsides of soul food, a quintessential American cuisine.
Soul Food Junkies explores the history and social significance of soul food to black cultural identity and its effect on African American health, good and bad. Soul food will also be used as the lens to investigate the dark side of the food industry and the growing food justice movement that has been born in its wake.
The film will include refreshments and be followed by a discussion with partners UC San Diego School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, Champions for Change, HealthyWorks, County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, and LiveWell San Diego.
