CHOCOLATE MILK: THE DOCUMENTARY is an exploration of the racial divide in breastfeeding. Told through the narratives of three African American women: a new mother, a midwife and a WIC lactation educator, the film seeks to answer the longstanding question of why more African American women are not breastfeeding. By creating an engaging narrative centered around the challenges of breastfeeding, Chocolate Milk will spark public discussion on how communities can better support black mothers.
Panel discussion facilitated by Elan Bridges of Nurse Family Partnership and Kalamazoo’s Leading Douala.
Hosted by The Michigan Breastfeeding Network, Kalamazoo Breastfeeding Coalition and The Black Arts & Cultural Center.
