FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Dancer, singer, activist, spy: the extraordinary life of Josephine Baker • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
A star of stage, screen and song, a resistance fighter, and a civil rights activist, #JosephineBaker took on many roles during a rollercoaster career straddling continents, epochs and wars. Half a century after her death, the American-born #icon of the #Jazz Age in #Paris becomes the first Black woman to enter the city’s famed #Panthéon, France’s mausoleum for “great men” – and, belatedly, great women too. FRANCE 24 looks back on Baker’s extraordinary life.
