One of the worlds most enduring icons is Josephine Baker, a pivotal legend of the Jazz Age and a woman who is still admired and revered to this day, the world over;
‘Josephine Baker sashayed onto a Paris stage during the 1920s with a comic, yet sensual appeal that took Europe by storm. Famous for barely-there dresses and no-holds-barred dance routines, her exotic beauty generated the nicknames “Black Venus,” “Black Pearl” and “Creole Goddess.” ‘
What many people don’t know about Baker is that she was actually a member of the French Resistance during WWII.;
‘Josephine served France during World War II in several ways. She performed for the troops, and was an honorable correspondent for the French Resistance (undercover work included smuggling secret messages written on her music sheets) and a sub-lieutenant in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force. She was later awarded the Medal of the Resistance with Rosette and named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor by the French government for hard work and dedication. ’
