24 Pancake Recipes to Make Instead of Aunt Jemima

Last week Quaker announced that they were doing away with the name and image of their Aunt Jemima brand.  Founded in 1889, from the beginning Aunt Jemima played on imagery from minstrel shows and the mammy figure, a stereotypical portrayal of a Black woman (think Gone with the Wind).

FIVE Things in FIVE Years of Black Girls Who Brunch
