Josephine Baker ... "the Bronze Venus | Black Pearl | Creole Goddess."
Vintage Actress, Singer, Dancer: Joséphine Carson Baker. Miss Josephine was not a burlesque dancer but she did however do most of the things a burlesque dancer would do. She first
danced for the public on the streets of St. Louis for nickels
and dimes. She began her dancing career as a 5'-7" tall chorus
girl in a all colored revue in St. Louis called 'Shuffle Along'
at the young age of sixteen.
