About the Author

M.M. Manring is an independent scholar living in Columbia, Missouri.


In the white imagination few images are as recognizable as Aunt Jemima. As a negative stereotype reinforcing both racism and sexism, Aunt Jemima symbolically valued the humanity of black women. As M.M. Manring's thoughtful and well written account makes clear, the racist image of the black mammy has had a powerful impact upon American culture and society. Slave in a Box documents the continuing commodification of racial and gender inequality within white America.--Manning Marable, Professor of History, and Director, Institute for Research in African-American Studies, Columbia University
