THEY MELT IN YOUR MOUTH! ~ 1950’S AD

Nancy Green (below) portrayed the Aunt Jemima character at the
1893
World’s Columbian Exposition
in Chicago, one of the first
Black
corporate models in the United States.

Subsequent advertising agencies hired dozens of actors to perform
the role as the first organized sales promotion campaign.           


The Aunt Jemima character has been criticized as an example of
the exploitation of Black women in American society. "Aunt Jemima"
is sometimes used as a female version of the derogatory epithet
"
Uncle Tom" or "Rastus". In June 2020, Quaker Oats announced
that the Aunt Jemima brand would be discontinued "to make
progress toward racial equality", and the brand was discontinued
one year later.

All hail the popular black model and former slave who was in everybody's  home in the 1890s as 'Aunt Jemima' - Face2Face Africa

Annie Oakley is a Western television series that fictionalizes the life
of the famous
Annie Oakley. (Except for depicting the protagonist
as a phenomenal
sharpshooter of the period, the program entirely
ignores the facts of the historical Oakley’s life.) Featuring actress
Gail Davis in the title role, the weekly program ran from January
1954 to February 1957 in
syndication. A total of 81 black-and-white
episodes were produced, with each installment running 25 minutes
in length.
ABC aired daytime reruns of the series on Saturdays and
Sundays from 1959 to 1960 and then again from 1964 to 1965.
