Film and Discussion: "Soul Food Junkies"

Monday, February 10, 2014 - 7:00 pm

The subtext of the movie, Soul Food, is about the fatal illness of a family’s matriarch because of the food she was eating. Soul Food Junkies recognizes not only the politics within the food industry but also its challenges of both the obvious and the subtle ones. Whereas Byron Hurt lifts up the traditions of soul food, he explores the negative effects that the food industry has on those who are poor, exploited, and marginalized by limited food options, especially persons of color.
