Joséphine Baker was the first African American female to star in a motion picture, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer. Not only was Joséphine beautiful, but she brought incredible amounts of change to the US for African Americans. After growing up being abused by her white female employer, Joséphine went to to live as a child of the streets, using street performances to support herself. She soon became the “highest paid chorus girl in vaudeville”. Joséphine Baker is as timeless as her Civil Rights efforts and for that we find her as sexy as her performances are famous.
No mention of all the work she did for the French resistance during WWII? For shame!
