(Adults) Join us as Chautauqua actor Debra Faulk portrays Nancy Green, the woman who became the face of “Aunt Jemima” pancakes. Green became one of the first prosperous African American women in the U.S. Green was born enslaved in Montgomery County, Kentucky, in 1834. Nancy Green became “Aunt Jemima” when businessman R.T. Davis had purchased a pre-mixed, self-rising recipe for pancakes and wanted an “Aunt Jemima,” a character from minstrel shows which were popular at the time, to be the face of his pancakes. Playing the role of “Aunt Jemima” gave Green financial independence few African Americans and few women experienced at the time. She used her wealth as a means to empower her community. She was particularly active in her church, leading missionary trips, investing in anti-poverty programs for African Americans, and advocating for equal rights. This program was funded in part by Kentucky Humanities Council, Inc. and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Call 873-5191 to sign up.
