About Josephine Baker
Josephine Baker was a spy. When World War II rocked her adopted France, Baker didn’t simply move to a more peaceful country. Instead she stuck around and did her part for the war effort.
The African American Diva, who was known as “La Baker” in her adopted France,. was a worldwide celebrity and devoted civil rights activist who first rose to fame by dancing in a “skirt” of artificial bananas and very little else.
