WEDU'S COMMUNITY CINEMA RETURNS THIS JANUARY
WITH SOUL FOOD JUNKIES
Acclaimed Director of Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes Explores the African American Community’s Relationship with Soul Food
Community Cinema, a national documentary screening series sponsored locally by WEDU and Independent Television Service (ITVS) presents a screening of Soul Food Junkies at Pasco Hernando Community College on Wednesday, January 23rd at 6:00pm.
Through candid interviews with soul food cooks, historians, and scholars, as well as with doctors, family members, and everyday people, Soul Food Junkies puts this culinary tradition under the microscope to examine both its positive and negative consequences. Hurt also explores the socioeconomic conditions in predominantly black neighborhoods, where it can be difficult to find healthy options, and meets some pioneers in the emerging food justice movement who are challenging the food industry, encouraging communities to “go back to the land” by creating sustainable and eco-friendly gardens, advocating for healthier options in local supermarkets, supporting local farmers' markets, avoiding highly processed fast foods, and cooking healthier versions of traditional soul food.
WHAT: FREE screening of Soul Food Junkies and discussion moderated by PHCC's Director of Multicultural Student Affairs and Equity Services, Mr. Imani Asukile.
WHO: Presented by ITVS Community Cinema, WEDU and Pasco-Hernando Community College. PST Auditorium, Room E-130
WHEN: January 23rd at 6:00pm, followed by discussion.
