I was today years old when I found out that after years of spying for France, Josephine Baker went to Germany to perform for sick and dying former inmates at Buchenwald concentration camp after the camp was liberated. She apparently never spoke about it publicly.

One of my favorite random things about Josephine Baker is that she sent an assistant to successfully retrieve her pets from her chateau before the Nazis rolled in and said that her animals would not give up on her, so she wasn't going to give up on them.

P.S. I've been reading a lot about Josephine Baker and listening to more as well as seeking out documentaries, and a GREAT start is this episode of the podcast "You're Dead To Me" with @greg_jenner @destheray (HI DESIREE!!!!) and @MChresfield

I read a Lena Horne biography @chipublib Carter G. Woodson Library as a kid and it informed my outlook on artists and activism. Here she is with the iconic Josephine Baker at the March on Washington in 1963.

@SaraJBenincasa @shaboom Josephine Baker is one of millions of People of Color who have spent their lives providing a multitude of self-less service.

Un collège Rosa Parks alors qu’une autre américaine, Josephine Baker, aurait bien mieux mérité cet honneur, elle qui ici soutenait les soldats français en 1940 avant de devenir résistante et de s’enraciner dans son cher Périgord. Non vraiment ce choix aurait été plus judicieux.
