Academy Museum Exclusive
Created to celebrate the Regeneration exhibit at the Academy Museum.
Josephine Baker (1906–1975) moved to Paris at age 19 to perform in La Revue nègre at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, and quickly became the main attraction. She played lead roles in four French feature films between 1927 and 1945; she worked for the French Resistance in World War II; and she dedicated her life to human rights causes. Baker was the first Black woman to receive a state funeral in France, and was posthumously inducted into the Panthéon, the nation’s mausoleum of heroes, in 2021.
