      EVENT DETAILS
      Chocolate Milk: The Documentary Screening and Town Hall August 2019

      CHOCOLATE MILK  a feature documentary by Elizabeth Bayne LOGLINE: Chocolate Milk examines how the socioeconomic factors of race and sex influence breastfeeding rates for black mothers in America through the stories of three women. SYNOPSIS: From sexual objectification of women’s breasts to insufficient maternity leave, there are many reasonswhy mothers in the U.S. struggle with the decision to breastfeed. Yet advocates argue the long-term health benefits to infants - reduced risk of chronic disease, cancer, asthma, and obesity - far outweigh the challenges. Add to this the racial, economic and social disparities that plague the African American community, and it’s no wonder African American women breastfeed at significantly lower rates. Chocolate Milk examines how the socioeconomic factors of race and sex influence breastfeeding rates for black mothers in America through the stories of three women. Townhall: After the screening of the film a group discussion will occur. The purpose of the discussion is to find out the current barriers within the community that is affecting breastfeeding.
