About the Movie
Chocolate Milk: The Documentaryis a 90-minute feature film which aims to answer the question, “Why don't more black women breastfeed?” The film follows the stories of:
Tami, a first time mother who wants to breastfeed, but has no family history of breastfeeding and only a basic knowledge of what to expect.
Lydia, a lactation educator at a local WIC center who dreams of providing the more advanced care so desperately needed by her community, but faces barriers to becoming a certified lactation consultant.
Racha, a third generation homebirth midwife, who must fight to keep her birth center open in the midst of racial discrimination and non-paying clients.
Elizabeth Bayne began this effort as an unfunded experimental project, and grew it to a fully-funded feature documentary.
