Soul Food Junkies Film Tackles Our Sometimes Unhealthy Connection to Rich Survival Foods

SOUL FOOD JUNKIES – a Byron Hurt Film

I laughed and learned a lot during this film. Watch it with the family this January!

Filmmaker Byron Hurt looks at the past and future of soul food — from its roots in Western Africa, to its incarnation in the American South, to its presence in modern communities of color. 

Soul Food Junkies also looks at the socioeconomics of the modern American diet, and how the food industry profits from making calories cheap, but healthy options expensive and hard to find.
