Beginning in February 2014, CM Series will be holding a Community Conversation & Fundraiser. We want to give the community the opportunity to hear why promoting breastfeeding is important for the community. The goal of the Community Conversation is to ensure the completion of The History of My Chocolate Milk documentary while providing education.
During the community conversation, we will discuss:
- Financial Literacy
- Community Support
- Breastfeeding Support
- Parental Empowerment
- Violence (Inner City & Beyond)
- Domestic Violence/Molestation
It is going to take the Black Community as a whole to stand together and we are asking you to help. Breastfeeding is one way to protect the community against diseases such as S.I.D.S., heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes, which is the leading cause of death among Black Americans. The History of My Chocolate Milk will put faces of real Mothers who breastfeed real children in the forefront.
Moon, the producer of The History of My Chocolate Milk, is determined to talk about the underlining problems in her community. The only way to truly start healing process is to openly discuss the problems from our history into our present. Everything from Slavery, Molestation, Infant Death, Chronic illnesses, Domestic Abuse, Childhood Abuse, Single Parenthood and so on. Our counterparts have breastfeeding champions in the entertainment field but very few Black Mothers speak out about breastfeeding unless it is to share a negative thought. Therefore, instead of waiting for our celebrity hero we are going to create our own.
