Quaker Oats announced it's rebranding Aunt Jemima pancake mix and syrup because of its racist history. While descendants of Lillian Richard, who portrayed Aunt Jemima for years, support the company's decision to rename the brand, they want to ensure her legacy lives on. We speak to Vera Harris, a family historian for the Richard family of Hawkins. Also, one of the weird symptoms we've heard about when it comes to the coronavirus is something called COVID toe.
