Review
Twenty years of research have revealed the truth about Josephine Baker's carer and life. Baker achieved fame as a heroine of the French resistance during World War II; but relatively little has been written of her many public achievements and contributions. This title covers the extent of her involvement in the civil rights movement, and her career's evolution. -- Midwest Book Review
