A thought-provoking new documentary delves into the longstanding and controversial relationship between the African American community and Soul Food.
Directed by Byron Hurt, Soul Food Junkies asks if our dietary traditions are in fact our community’s biggest enemy.
Is Soul Food killing us?
From Loop 21:
“A new documentary is exploring the idea that Black people’s love of “soul food” is killing them off at a higher rate than drugs, alcohol and tobacco. In Soul Food Junkies, people speak of living in neighborhoods where they can find dozens of fried chicken spots in their neighborhood, but not one salad bar. Directed by Byron Hurt, the film aims to alert the community on how eating habits can lead to poor health and early death. “
