"This moving, revelatory biography of Josephine Baker (1906-1975), the famous Flies-Bergere dancer, is the result of twenty years of research. Baker adopted the author when he was a teenager, and this book represents his search for the truth of her fractious life. Baker was many things: a charismatic performer; a fearless opponent of oppression and racism who risked her life for the French Resistance during World War II; a self-proclaimed Universal Mother who adopted children from many countries; an entrepreneur born into poverty who earned and lost a fortune; a friend to such world leaders as Martin Luther King, Jr., Charles de Gaulle, Robert F. Kennedy, and Eleanor Roosevelt."
