Don't change her name, USE her name! Nancy Green
Have you ever heard of Nancy Green? She was the woman hired to portray Aunt Jemima when the pancake mix company started. It turned out that she was friendly, told entertaining stories, and she did a great job for the company. Instead of changing the name, dedicate the product to Nancy Green. Put her real photo on the box and educate people about the kind of strong, caring, community involved person she was, using her advantages to fight poverty in her community. When all the appropriate known history of her life has been shared on the box, change to celebrating other such strong black women who overcame or are overcoming. There will be no end to such stories. In her honor, send cases of her namesake products to anyplace suffering natural or economic disasters.
Changing names doesn't change history and we can't learn from a past we ignore!
WOW! Thanks for this information! Agree with all, but especially the last sentence!
AMEN!!!! Thank you for posting this!!
