Ashé Cultural Arts Center invites you to the film screening of Soul Food Junkies by Byron Hurt. Soul food lies at the heart of African American cultural identify. The black community's love affair with soul food is deep-rooted, complex, and in some cases, deadly. Soul Food Junkies puts this culinary tradition under the microscope to examine both its significance and its consequences. A discussion following the film will be moderated by Jamilah Peters-Muhammad, health and wellness coordinator at Ashé Cultural Arts Center. Panelists include Rashida Ferdinand, founder and executive director of Sankofa, CDC; Amina DaDa, chef at the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal; and Gia Hamilton, creative director/owner of Gris Gris Lab.
