This podcast focuses on the phenomenal entertainer Josephine Baker.
Josephine Baker was born poor but also desired to become great. When she tired of racism in her path, she moved to Europe and became of the biggest stars in the world. She never forgot where she came from, however, and returned to the United States to fight for civil rights.
After adopting 12 children of different nationalities and races, Josephine addressed the huge crowd at the March on Washington, telling her story and providing guidance for the future.
