During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.

Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues

aaaand she had a pet cheetah

The best thing she ever did was leave the US





want this moment burned on my eyelids

So many girls saw this. Bless.

All hail the queen.

Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists like katy perry and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, wete cheering on and gave her an award






Didn’t she steal this from a Black Tumble post……

Does it matter where she got it from, though? She’s supporting Black feminists…

I’m 100% sure she has the ability to cite her sources instead of plagiarizing a Black Woman’s work. We do not need “support” that erases our words.

Those are not her words.

She 100% stole this from a Black Tumblr user. I can’t remember who said it, but I’m 100% certain I’ve reblogged it and it’s buried in my archives somewhere. Probably around the time she dropped her album.

i hope someone can find it because she is  denying knowledge of anyone saying it before she did:
