Biography

Josephine Baker was a famous dancer and singer in the 1920's. She became popular then for her costumes and wild performances. She also dedicated a lot of time fighting racism. Racism prevented her from being accepting in the U.S.A. until 1973. She had a hard time getting started and getting her name out there for the people because of that.

Impact

Josephine Baker made dancing way more known in the 1920's and also provided a little comedy during her performances for a good laugh. Another major event was she adopted several children, which was named "Rainbow Tribe" because she believed "children of different color and religion could still be brothers."
