Community Cinema - Soul Food Junkies YWCA
Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EST)
Please join us for a FREE Community Cinema screening of Soul Food Junkies.
To many African Americans, soul food is sacrament, ritual, and a key expression of cultural identity. But does this traditional cuisine do more harm to health than it soothes the soul?
Filmmaker Byron Hurt explores the upsides and downsides of soul food, a quintessential American cuisine. Soul Food Junkies explores the history and social significance of soul food to black cultural identity and its effect on African American health, good and bad.
This screening in brought to you in partner with the YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh
