The Mammy Project confronts the American stereotype of Mammy as a white man's fantasy, a black woman's history and a country's favorite product.
As performed by Michelle Matlock this project travels from the life and times of Nancy Green (the first woman hired to play the part of a mammy - Aunt Jemima), through the minstrel show era and silver-screen Mammies, to the present day world of television, movies and world-recognized talk show hostesses.
