An Evening with Byron Hurt

February 22, 2018 @ 5:30 pm

In line with this year’s theme of Reclaiming the Narrative, the Minority Health Conference has decided to host an in-depth look at food injustice and its impact on marginalized communities. Join us for an evening with Byron Hurt, an award-winning documentary film-maker, writer, and professor. His most recent documentary and recipient of the CNN’s Best Documentary Award at the American Black Film Festival, Soul Food Junkies, will be screened. In Soul Food Junkies, Hurt takes us on a fascinating historical and culinary journey exploring the soul food tradition and its ties to Black cultural identity. The film delves into the positive and negative consequences of this culinary tradition. A moderated Q&A with Byron Hurt will follow. Copies of Soul Food Junkies will be available for purchase.

Reception: 5:30 p.m. at Michael Hooker Research Center Atrium
Screening: 6:00 p.m. at 133 Rosenau
Q&A to follow
