Joséphine Baker: The 1st Black Superstar

Interesting (though, at times, somewhat over-enthusiastic) documentary about Joséphine Baker. There’s a lot here that I suspect most of us knew little about – how she ended up in France, her Rainbow Tribe and the story behind it and her WW2 work.

© Forget About It Film & TV, for BBC Wales. 2006. Narrated by Josette Simon. Directed by Suzanne Phillips.

What you see in the comments on the YouTube page is mostly par for the course, shall we say …
