Re: Aunt Jemima - Carol
I've done a little reading and ... Minstrel shows were late 19th century entertainment that featured white actors wearing blackface and portraying black men as being slow, lazy and dull whited. Minstrel shows were scurrilous in the extreme and Aunt Jemima was a popular character in a Minstrel show.
I doubt if many African Americans will miss her passing.
