ABOUT DEAD PREZ 

With hard-hitting beats, politically aware rhymes, deft lyricism and strong song concepts, dead prez emerged in 2000 as one of rap's most politically strident outfits. Consisting of Stic.man and M-1, dead prez's music provided a voice for the voiceless and a sobering look at the global power structure.  Stic and M-1 have been involved in political and community activism, pushing for progressive education for all people, teaching the merits of fitness and eating healthily and illustrating changes needed in American society and throughout the world.   In 2012, dead prez released their latest album, Information Age. 

ABOUT SOUL FOOD JUNKIES

In this award-winning documentary, celebrated filmmaker Byron Hurt shares his journey to learn more about the African American cuisine known as soul food. Baffled by his dad's unwillingness to change his traditional soul food diet in the face of a health crisis, Hurt sets out to learn more about this rich culinary tradition and its relevance to black cultural identity. He discovers that the love affair that his dad and his community have with soul food is deep-rooted, complex, and in some tragic cases, deadly. Through candid interviews with soul food cooks, historians, and scholars, as well as doctors, family members, and everyday people, Soul Food Junkies blends history, humor, and heartwarming stories to place this culinary tradition under the microscope. "Soul Food Junkies" won the 2012 CNN Best Documentary Award at the Award at the American Black Film Festival.  Click here to view trailer.
