Josephine’s Dream is the story of Josephine Baker, a famous African American singer, dancer and entertainer. During the 1920’s, segregation in the United States did not allow African Americans equal rights to whites. So Josephine decided to move to Paris, France to be a performer. There, she became a success, and even joined the French Resistance during World War II. Later in her adult life, Josephine adopted twelve children, all of varying races and backgrounds. She believed in bringing people together through her performances and her family. (Grades3-5)
