Chocolate Milk: The Documentary
About this Event
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.
Chocolate Milk: The Documentary counters this habitually negative narrative as award-winning director and producer Elizabeth Bayne, MPH, MFA explores the racial inequities of breastfeeding in her first feature-length film.
Milk + Honey Co. is cordially inviting you to attend the screening of view this documentary. we would greatly appreciate your presence as it would give you insight into why many black mothers are not breastfeeding and follow the journey of these mothers.
The event will begin with a brief introduction, followed by the screenings of the film. Afterwards there will be a live Q+ A session, finishing smoothly with some time to mingle.
We will serve light refreshments.
