Watch "Soul Food Junkies" tonight on PBS

"Soul Food Junkies," an hour-long documentary by Byron Hurt, premieres tonight on the PBS series "Independent Lens." We've seen a preview copy, and we suggest you watch it, too! The film focuses on issues of nutrition vs. tradition in the African American community, drawing upon the story of Hurt's own family. Check your local PBS listings and tune in or set your DVR. Hurt explores issues that are particularly relvant to African Americans and Southerners, but the film's themes of personal and public health, and inherited culinary preferences, and access to healthy food are universal.
