Love Soul Food? So do we. We'll be serving it up!

Kick off 2013 with Byron Hurt's Soul Food Junkies, a film which explores the history and social significance of soul food to black cultural identity and its effect on African American health, good and bad. Soul food will also be used as the lens to investigate the dark side of the food industry and the growing food justice movement that has been born in its wake.


6:00 pm - Enjoy delicious African-infused vegan soul food from Malong Pendar of A TASTE OF AFRICA fame.

We'll be enjoying Smokin' Warehouse's amazing BBQ as well.

Come on and get it!

ITVS and KQED are partnering with Hub Oakland's breakfast series, Grits and Greens. Discuss the intersection of art, food, and technology over a delicious breakfast with an acclaimed panel featuring Ashara Ekundayo, Byron Hurt, Drew Dellinger, and Evan Bissell. That event starts at 7:30 am at Miss Ollie's Restaurant.

"Grits & Greens" highlights individuals, companies and organizations committed to sustainable living, creative excellence, social justice, and locally grown solutions. In January we will also highlight creative placemaking strategies inspired by the cosmology of Dr. Martin Luther King.
