The Round Rock Public Library presents the 2012-2013 season of Community Cinema, part of the Independent Lens Series. All screenings are free and open to the public.
January's film will be Soul Food Junkies by Byron Hurt at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31 in Room B.
Soul Food lies at the heart of African American cultural identity. The black community’s love affair with soul food is deep-rooted, complex, and in some cases, deadly. Soul Food Junkies puts this culinary tradition under the microscope to examine both its significance and its consequences.
Join us for a free screening and panel discussion featuring Toni Tipton-Martin and Naya Jones.
