A Must See: Soul Food Junkies

On Monday, PBS premiered the documentary: Soul Food Junkies through the Independent Lens Series.

 

The film, directed and produced by filmmaker, writer, and anti-sexist activist Byron Hurt, explores the history of soul food and its importance in African-American culture. He also goes beyond the history and cultural significance of soul food and makes connections to the food justice movement, highlighting disparities in terms of health outcomes and lack of access to healthy food options in communities predominantly populated by people of color.

Great for sparking discussions that can lead to meaningful actions, Soul Food Junkies is available for you to watch freely online until February 11th, 2013. I really encourage you to check it out!

Grace & Peace,

From Aspiring Humanitarian, Relando Thompkins, MSW
