Aunt Jemima: It was Never About the Pancakes | Black Excellence

What a powerful history lesson this is.  I can’t remember if we ever used this brand.  My mother was an excellent cook, but I remember the commercials now and then, and even the makeover in the 90’s.  I think it’s time we confronted every symbol and ask the hard questions if they really support our values or not.  And if not, then they deserve to go away or be altered.
