Followers of Bronzeville Historical Society have asked that I provide updates on our efforts to place a burial marker on the gravesite of Mrs. Nancy Green.  Mrs. Nancy Green portrayed “Aunt Jemima” until her death in Chicago in 1923.  Through the efforts of the Society and Kentucky Historical Society, we have found her next of kin.  Oak Woods Cemetery has agreed to support our placing a monument on her grave after documents are signed.

Additionally, Mrs. Anna Short Harrington portrayed “Aunt Jemima”.  On August 5, 2014, descendants of Anna Short Harrington filed a lawsuit at Illinois Northern District Court against plaintiffs Quaker Oats and PepsiCo for $2 billion USD. The suit, which also names as defendants Pinnacle Foods and its former suitor Hillshire Brands, accuses the companies of failing to pay Harrington and her heirs an “equitable fair share of royalties” from the pancake mix and syrup brand that uses her likeness and recipes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aunt_Jemima
