Dalvery Blackwell, co-founder of the African American Breastfeeding Network, talks with young mothers as she holds a baby from an attendee at a class held at a YMCA in Milwaukee. Breast-feeding is thought to help protect against higher rates of infant mortality and childhood obesity, to more breast cancer deaths and heart disease in adults - and it's much less common among U.S. black women than in whites and others. Rates have improved in recent years but the disparity remains. (AP Photo/Darren Hauck)
