Josephine Baker

Author: Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

Illustrated by: Agathe Sorlet

Meet Josephine Baker, the world-famous entertainer, activist, and French Resistance agent.

Josephine Baker was born for the stage. But growing up in segregated St. Louis, she didn't have the same opportunities as white entertainers. So, she moved to Paris where audiences fell in love with her. Josephine worked as a dancer, an actor, and even a spy. She then spent the rest of her life spreading the word that people of all colors can live together in harmony. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the entertainer's amazing life.
