Celebrating Josephine Baker

Tuesday, November 30 | 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Graham Chapel
Graham Chapel, St. Louis, MO 63105

Please join us in Graham Chapel for a celebration of St. Louis-born Josephine Baker: performing artist, fashion icon, Resistance hero, adoptive mother to a “Rainbow Tribe” of twelve children from different countries, speaker at the 1963 March on Washington – and now, the first woman of color to be entombed as a French national hero in the Panthéon.

This celebration is sponsored by French Connexions, the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures and the Divided City initiative. A detailed program is forthcoming.
