R.T. Davis Milling Co. hired freed slave, Nancy Green [born in Montgomery County, KY] to ‘be’ Aunt Jemima®, in 1890. Nancy was made to play Aunt Jemima® as a stereotypical, antebellum plantation ‘mammy’, being subservient, overweight and dressed in typical slave attire, with a red bandana headscarf. She made her debut at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago and soon became known as the ‘Pancake Queen.' Her likeness became the new logo. until her untimely death in 1923.
