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: TAMI a first time mother who wants to breastfeed, RACHA a third generation midwife, and LYDIA a WIC lactation educator. Through these women’s stories, the film explores breastfeeding’s decline, the undue health burden this places on black infants, and the struggle to bring it back as a cultural norm in the African American community
