Abstract:

Biography of African-American entertainer Josephine Baker, with special emphasis on her offstage role in the struggles for racial equality. Baker's life is traced from her impoverished childhood in St. Louis and her early performances in the musical Shuffle along in New York to her cataclysmic arrival on the Parisian stage in La revue nègre, and the subsequent high and low points of her life: her appearances at the Folies Bergère and Casino de Paris ; her film roles, beginning with The siren of the tropics ; her return to New York in the Ziegfeld Follies ; her work in the French Resistance in World War II, for which she was decorated ; her battles for civil rights in the U.S., including a highly publicized vendetta with journalist Walter Winchell ; her adoption of the multiracial Rainbow Tribe ; her friendship with Princess Grace of Monaco ; and her comeback at age 69. Among the commentators are her adopted sons Jean-Claude Baker and Jarry Bouillon-Baker, and actor Lynn Whitfield, who played her in HBO's The Josephine Baker story. Baker herself is seen in numerous performance excerpts and in an interview recorded in May 1951.
