Chocolate Milk

Friday, August 30th at 7pm

Help Fern + Foster celebrate and educate about Black Breastfeeding!

We are excited to partner with Tacoma Urban League to bring one final showing to Tacoma of Chocolate Milk, the Documentary.

 

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 reasons why 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.
