The Chocolate Milk Documentary, by filmmaker and public health advocate Elizabeth Bayne, debuted in 2015 and really brought light to the breastfeeding reality of black women/families. Faith Formula Human Services and Mother’s Magical Milk has partnered together to present: Chocolate Milk and Cookies – A Community Forum that will bring community leaders together to discuss barriers to breastfeeding initiation and duration rates. A selection of videos from the Chocolate Milk Documentary series will be included in the discussion.
