Joséphine Baker: fleeing discrimination in the USA. Born Freda Joséphine McDonald, Baker (her married name) began her career in Paris in 1925 at La Revue Negre on the Champs-Elysées where she was given the accolade la Venus Noire. A rival of Mistinguett, she took Paris by storm with her striking beauty, her talent, and her penchant for daring. Our tour will take us from Avenue Montaigne in the 8th arrondissement to rue Richer in the 9th and takes us past buildings and music halls from the 1930s.
We will meet at 2:30pm at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, 15 Av. Montaigne, 75008 Paris. The closes metro station is Alma Marceau.
