The now-famous photograph (above) of John and Yoko is all the
more poignant for having been taken on the morning of December
8, 1980, just twelve hours before Lennon’s death.

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
