Some American parenting group known as the Chocolate Milk Mommies in Birmingham, Alabama, have decided to take part in a motherhood photoshoot where they have to breastfeed their children openly to send a message.

According to the group, the purpose of this is to encourage black women to proudly engage the noble act of breastfeeding their children in public, despite the negative stigma attached to women breastfeeding within the Black American community which is linked to slavery.

Rauslyn Adams, 26, revealed that it is taboo within the African American homes for a woman to breastfeed her child, let alone breastfeed past the age of one. See photoshoot of topless black mothers breastfeeding their children (Photos)
