Meet Josephine Baker and learn about her incredible life as a performer, activist and French Resistance fighter. From growing up in segregated Missouri, to defying all the odds and travelling to France where she won the hearts of theatre-going Parisians and even became a war-time spy. She spent the rest of her life spreading the word that people of all colours can live together in harmony.
This series of books send an inspiring message to children of all ages, through accessible story telling and quirky illustrations. Older children will love the extra facts at the back of the book including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of Josephine’s life.
