Cultural obsession with eating. Yet Schwartz makes clear that the language of reducing "referred to salaries, dividends, wages, budgets, credit and the gold content of the dollar as well as to weight" (192). As Hurst herself certainly knew, in the United States of 1933, a substantial percentage of the population was eating little or no food with its meals out of financial necessity. Bearing such seeming contradictions in mind should allow us to resist the temptation to analyze the history of Aunt Jemima solely on the level of iconography and impersonation.

His songs were repeatedly encored and it seemed as if the audience could not hear too many" (18 Nov. 1889: 4).

Slide further hypothesizes that "the secret of [Gardella's] success lay in her 34 SERVANT PROBLEMS being the black mammy of the Ethel Waters type in A Member of the Wedding, in whose arms everyone wished to be held and loved. Aunt Jemima represented warmth and joy, and the fact that she was really white doubtless helped to win over those with racial antagonisms" (Encyclopedia 16).
