    We're celebrating National Black Breastfeeding Week with a free viewing of CHOCOLATE MILK: THE DOCUMENTARY! Join us at The Queen Theatre in downtown Bryan on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019. Doors open at 9:00 AM!

    After the film, join us at the Brazos Valley African American Museum for a reception & discussion on "The State of Black Breastfeeding in the Brazos Valley." Discussion @ 11:30 AM.
    ***More details coming soon!***
    CHOCOLATE MILK: THE DOCUMENTARY is an exploration of the racial divide in breastfeeding. Told through the narratives of three African American women: a new mother, a midwife and a WIC lactation educator, the film seeks to answer the longstanding question of why more African American women are not breastfeeding. By creating an engaging narrative centered around the challenges of breastfeeding, Chocolate Milk will spark public discussion on how communities can better support black mothers.
    We warmly invite breastfeeding families and everyone in the community who is interested in supporting black families to join us!

    These events are free. Please pass this invite along to those you know who might be interested!
