Soul Food Junkies: A Film About Family, Food, & Tradition

Award-winning filmmaker Bryon Hurt offers a fascinating exploration of the soul food tradtion, its relevance to black cultural identity, and its continuing popularity despite the known dangers of high-fat, high-calorie diets. Inspired by his father's lifelong love affair with soul food even in the face of a life-threatening health crisis, Hurt discovers that the relationship between African-Americans and dishes like ribs, grits, and fried chicken is deep-rooted and culturally based.
