They were called Aunt Jemima but that was not their real names.They were spokespeople..the real Aunt Jemima came from a song written for a minstrel.show, she was a character that was a racial sterotype not very complimentary. close! Nancy Green was actually born into slavery but when she was freed she did what she done best, cook. General Mills bought the company from her. She worked WITH THEM till her death at age 89 in 1923. She was the first model for the company and many more followed. She was one of the first black millionaires. Her story, like her, is/was one of courage, strength and determination. This younger generation doesn’t care what their ancestors accomplished, they only care that their feelings are hurt. you need to check your history. As a black lady yourself you should be singing her praises not trying to destroy what she accomplished. Nancy Green was born into slavery but when she was freed she did what she did best, cook! General Mills bought the company from her and was the first, of many, models. She worked with (not for) the company till she died in 1923. She was actually one of the first black millionaires when she died. You should study her. She was an amazing strong, courageous and intelligent business woman. really mrs butterworth is white, aunt jamima is black and so is the man on uncles’ ben rice. These people became the first black models and made millions. Instead of praising what they did you think they shamed you. neither of these lady’s was white. Aunt Jemima (Nancy Greene), Mrs Butterworth (Butterfly McQueen) (Mary Kay Bergman was voice only), uncle Ben was an amalgamation of a Texas farmer and a waiter. None of them got paid anything from the millions that has been made off the caricatures.
