Season 14, Episode 5 Soul Food Junkies
First Aired: January 14, 2013
Filmmaker Byron Hurt examines the soul-food tradition of black culture. Because soul food is often cooked with lots of fat, sugar and salt, it can lead to obesity and other health issues, as happened to Hurt's father, who died at age 63 from pancreatic cancer. Along the way, he talks with soul-food cooks, historians, doctors and everyday people; and details the socioeconomic conditions in predominantly black neighborhoods that can make it difficult for residents to find healthy food options.
