News Article from Black Breastfeeding Week

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by a reporter, Rachel Crumpler, from North Carolina Health News. When she sent the completed article, I never expected my name to be at the top of the page. Nor did I expect to see a photo of my dear friendly, Olivia Rice, the co-founder of Chocolate Milk of Wilmington. The article also includes wonderful information from Maya Jackson, Janiya Mitnaul Williams, and many more. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring more attention to Black Breastfeeding Week.
