The HOT 97 Morning Show


How do you feel about women who nurse in public? Does it make you feel uncomfortable? A 25 year old woman who goes by the name of Karlesha Thurman uploaded a photo of herself breastfeeding her baby at her college graduation. She graduated from Long Beach State University in California with a degree in accounting. That’s a pretty big accomplishment, however, this photo that was uploaded by her friend somewhat overshadows that now.

While Karlesha was feeding the baby, her friend asked if she could take a photo because she thought it was cool. Shortly after she uploaded it to Facebook, ‘Black Women Do Breastfeed’, in support of a woman who got slammed for nursing in public.

When Karlesha was questioned by Today about breastfeeding in public she replied, ‘I did it to show it’s natural, it’s normal, there’s nothing wrong with it,’. She went on to say ‘I was proud of the fact that not only did I graduate but that I got to share the moment with the one person who is the most important to me and that is my daughter.’

Hmmm what’s your take on this?
