Mānoa Campus, Law School Moot Courtroom Add to Calendar

Please join us to celebrate the release of Andrea Freeman's book Skimmed: Breastfeeding, Race, and Injustice. Skimmed tells the story of "The Famous Fultz Quads”—identical sisters born into a tenant farming family in North Carolina in 1946. Their white doctor sold the rights to use the girls for marketing purposes to the highest-bidding formula company. Over half a century later, baby formula is a seventy-billion-dollar industry and black mothers have the lowest breastfeeding rates in the country. Examining history, marketing, media, popular culture, and law, Skimmed shows how feeding America's youngest citizens is fraught with legal and social inequalities. Khara Jabola-Carolus, Executive Director of the Hawaii Committee on the Status of Women, will join Professor Freeman in conversation.
