            Skimmed: Breastfeeding, Race, and Injustice

            These four African American babies were the first surviving set of identical quadruplets born in the United States. Their white doctor named them and sold the rights to their image. He benefited while they lived in poverty. The Pet Milk company used the quads to sell formula inst...ead of breast milk to generations of black mothers. But that isn't the whole story. Skimmed tells the heartbreaking story of America's first identical quadruplets, their rise to fame and use as advertising symbols, and the damage done to them and generations of African American families. Relating the sisters' story, Andrea Freeman invites readers into the fascinating and fraught history of how the seemingly simple task of feeding America's youngest citizens is awash in social, legal, and cultural inequalities. Despite the high cost of baby formula and the health advantages of breast milk, Black women have the lowest breastfeeding rates in the nation. Black babies born in the U.S. suffer from infant mortality more than twice as often as other babies. Andrea Freeman uncovers the true causes of the dramatic racial disparities in breastfeeding rates in America. She reveals how aspects of history, law, corporate power, culture, and the media have played a part in the routine dispossession of Black women's choice of how to nourish their babies since slavery. This book tells the little-known but urgent story of the making of a modern public health crisis, and the four little girls whose lives encapsulate a nationwide injustice. Breast milk is often our first food, and the current legal and policy framework that makes it unavailable to large numbers of Black infants is a form of food oppression. Skimmed exposes how American laws and policies affect the nutritional lives of Black families from birth, and proposes effective and immediate solutions for a healthier and more just future.

            Originally published in 2001, A City Possessed is the harrowing account of one of New Zealand's most high-profile criminal cases - a story of child sexual abuse allegations, gender politics and the law. In detailing the events of the 1990s that led up to and surrounded the allega...tions made against several staff of the Christchurch Civic Creche, author Lynley Hood shows how and why such a case could happen. A City Possessed won the Montana Medal for Non-Fiction at the 2002 Montana New Zealand Book Awards. Her penetrating analysis of the social and legal processes by which the conviction of Peter Ellis was obtained, and repeatedly upheld, raises major issues for our justice system and the way we see ourselves. Peter Ellis served seven years of a 10-year jail sentence for abusing seven children at the Christchurch Civic Creche. He has always maintained his innocence, and has gained widespread support for what many see as a miscarriage of justice. This paperback edition comes at a time when Peter Ellis and the Christchurch Civic Creche case have returned to public attention. In July 2019, a terminally ill Ellis was granted a final appeal to the Supreme Court, scheduled for November 2019.
