The Tragic Real-Life Story Of Josephine Baker – What Happened to Josephine Baker?
The mini true story of Josephine Baker. Her first marriage was to American Pullman porter Willie Wells when she was only 13 years old. The marriage was reportedly very unhappy and the couple divorced a short time later. Another short-lived marriage followed to Willie Baker in 1921; she retained Baker’s last name because her career began taking off during that time, and it was the name by which she became best known. Baker refused to perform for segregated audiences in the United States and is noted for her contributions to the civil rights movement. On 23 August 2021, it was announced that in November 2021 she will be interred in the Panthéon in Paris, the first black woman to receive one of the highest honors in France.
