Louis, Missouri, during segregation to defying expectations and performing on the stage in Paris, where audiences fell in love with her. Josephine Baker was born for the stage. But growing up in segregated St. Louis, she didn't have the same opportunities as white entertainers.

So, she moved to Paris where audiences fell in love with her.

Josephine worked as a dancer, an actor and even a spy.
