Josephine Baker was an amazingly talented and spectacular singer/dancer, known as the Bronze Venus & she adopted a dozen children – all from different races & countries. I always think of her as that girl in the banana skirt.
But there is so much more to her!
From a horribly hard childhood, she became celebrated and was the first African-American woman (her parents had been slaves) to star in a major motion picture. She was offered the leadership of the American Civil Rights movement after Martin Luther King was killed. She received the French Croix De Guerre for her work with the French Resistance. She volunteered to be a spy the day that World War II broke out. There is loads more…
She’s TOTALLY a Gemini; Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter & Pluto all together in Gemini & squared by Saturn in Pisces; Busting through personal demons to display pyrotechnic guts, charisma and wits.
