5-CAROLINA MAMMY1923 - Billy James. Cover photo of AUNT JEMIMA, one of several who played this role in blackface. Has separated spine. Aunt Jemima was originally howevera brand of pancake mix, syrup, and other breakfast foods currently owned by the Quaker Oats Company of Chicago. The trademark dates to 1893, although Aunt Jemima pancake mix debuted in 1889. The Quaker Oats Company first registered the Aunt Jemima trademark in April 1937. Aunt Jemima originally came from a minstrel show as one of their pantheon of stereotypical African American characters. Aunt Jemima appears to have been a postbellum addition to that cast. On our sheet music she is TESS GARDELLA, Italian American performer, in blackface.
