Josephine Baker was an extraordinary singer and performer of the 1930's. She was well-known for her banana dance. During the time of the Great Depression, she entertained us. She was the first African American to star in a major motion picture. She integrated American concert halls, and made history as a world entertainer. Her style was impeccable, sassy, and aggressively beautiful.
