Episode #3: Black Breastfeeding History Documentary

I talk with Afrykayn Moon, mother and breastfeeding advocate about her feature-length documentary film, currently in the funding stage, which focuses on exploring the disparaging breastfeeding rates within the Black communities, and diving into how our history plays a role in the present statics. The film will put the faces of real Mothers who breastfeed real children in the forefront.

I am a 34 year old Ghanaian-American woman, a thoughtful wife, and a mother of 3 children all fed breast milk for at least the first 6 months of life. I was born and raised in San Diego County in southern California. I love writing and photography. I am passionate about sharing stories of people who have faced challenges and overcome the obstacles. I am over-committed my mission: to document diverse variations normal breastfeeding, across cultures and delivery methods breast milk. I hope that my work will positively impact breastfeeding mothers of the future.
