WHAT: The Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture (CSRPC) at the University of Chicago presents the premiere of “Soul Food Junkies,” a documentary about the history of the African-American community’s soul food tradition. A screening on Sunday at the Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts will be followed by a panel discussion featuring director Byron Hurt, health activists and local youth farmers from Growing Power Chicago. Through candid interviews with soul food cooks, historians and scholars, doctors, family members and everyday people, “Soul Food Junkies” puts this culinary tradition under the microscope to scrutinize both its positive and negative consequences.
