Why We Celebrate Josephine Baker this Women;s History Month

Josephine Baker remains a woman to be celebrated and respected for her contributions.

As an activist, dancer, singer, universal mother and fashion icon. we are excited about

the most recent international honor she received. In our previous blog post we shared that Baker was honored with a Pantheon burial in France (posthumously).

Receently, France announced the first round of 10, 20 and 50 euro coins. Three women are featured and Josephine is among them. Baker and Marie Curie also share the honor of Pantheon burials. Josephine isthe only woman of color in the historic Pantheon mausoleum. She is possibly the only woman of color honored in France with a coin bearing her likeness. For this reason, and many more, we celebrate Josephine Baker this Women's History Month!
