70Josephine Baker

"Baker was the first African American female to star in a major motion picture, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer. (wikipedia)" she broke the glass ceiling for all these other women. she was a visionary and revolutionary and knew how to sell the goods. she rocks on forEVER.

Above all others! She is who we are and what we should all hope to be. So many firsts came from this visionary and revolutionary artist. ALL Americans should know about her and what she did not just as an artist but a person, most of all BLACK AMERICA!

Love her. Saw her in Newark, N.J. when I was about nine years old..
Being a shy kid I did not go to the stage when she (Ms Baker) asked the children in the audience to come to the stage to receive a gift.. It was a silk handkerchief... Now I am 71 years and still wish I had gone to meet her.. Chmaroki4
