On this day

Happy Birthday Josephine Baker

Born on this day in 1906, Josephine Baker would become one of the biggest icons of the Jazz Age after moving to France. She used her public profile to not only act and dance but also assist in the French Resistance during WWII and actively support the Civil Rights Movement.
