Aunt Jemima

There are so many differences between the old and new Aunt Jemima that they are almost too numerous to count! Certainly societal ideas about race have influenced Aunt Jemima’s change of face. But the image of Aunt Jemima’s profession has changed as well. Instead of a housewife, Aunt Jemima could be a professional working mom today.

What other changes do you notice?
