Up from Aunt Jemimaism:

Tales from the Dorsey Plot at Grove Cemetery, Trumansburg 

Join us at the Grove Cemetery chapel in Trumansburg for a brief overview and then take a short walk to the Dorsey Plot. Town of Ulysses historian John Wertis will introduce the group to Riche Richardson's book, "Emancipation's Daughters" and the concepts of Mammyism/Aunt Jemimaism. He’ll refer to individual burials to tell the story of the Dorsey Family and how each successive generation of women made steps away from negative stereotyping.
