Davis Milling Company hired former slave Nancy Green as a spokesperson for the Aunt Jemima pancake mix in 1890.Nancy Green was born in Montgomery County, Kentucky, and played the Jemima character from 1890 until her death on August 30, 1923. As Jemima, Green operated a pancake-cooking display at the Worlds Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1893, appearing beside the "worlds largest flour barrel." From this point on, marketing materials for the line of products centered around the stereotypical mammy archetype, including the Aunt Jemima marketing slogan first used at the World Fair, "Ise in Town, Honey".Anna Julia Cooper used the Worlds Columbian Exposition as an opportunity to address how young African American women, were being exploited by white men. She predicted the appeal of Aunt Jemima and the southern domestic ideal and went on to describe the norths fascination with southern traditions as part of America’ s “unwritten history”.Progressive African American Women post emancipation, saw Aunt Jemima’ s image as a setback that inspired a regression in race relations.Just as the formula for the mix has changed several times over the years, so has the Aunt Jemima image been modified several times. In her most recent 1989 make-over, as she reached her 100th anniversary, the 1968 image was updated, with her kerchief removed to reveal a natural hairdo and pearl earrings. The logo much more resembled a modern homemaker than previous designs and carried far fewer racial connotations. This new look remains with the products to this day.
