Many of you attended the Philadelphia Premiere of Byron Hurt's award-winning documentary SOUL FOOD JUNKIES at the 2012 BlackStar. If you didn't get a chance to see it then or just want to see it on the big screen one more time, we invite you to join us next week for a Community Cinema screening on February 7 at 6:30pm sponsored by WHYY and Independent Television Service (ITVS). This screening is free! Byron will be in attendance and participate in a Q&A moderated by BlackStar's founder Maori Holmes.

In Soul Food Junkies Byron Hurt sets out on a historical and culinary journey to learn more about the soul food tradition and its relevance to black cultural identity. Hurt’s exploration was inspired by his father’s lifelong love affair with the high-fat, calorie-rich traditional soul food diet and his unwillingness to give it up even in the face of a life-threatening health crisis. Hurt discovers that the relationship between African Americans and culinary dishes like ribs, grits, and fried chicken is culturally based, deep-rooted, complex, and often deadly.
