Filmmaker Byron Hurt looks at the past and future of soul food from its roots in Western Africa, to its incarnation in the American South, to its contribution to modern health crises in communities of color. Soul Food Junkies also looks at the socioeconomics of the modern American diet, and how the food industry profits from making calories cheap, but healthy options expensive and hard to find.

strike me as being generally popular in the Southern culture of America. The film maker wanted to show how
some food choices were really not good for the health although people continue to eat those foods. Films like
this should be a wake up to anyone who eats to take a closer look at the types of food and equally important
how foods are prepared. The film was informative, fun and thought provoking.
PBS & Byron Hurt did a great job. Just in time for Black History month!!
