"Josephine, all razzamatazz / Erupted into the Roaring Twenties—a volcano." A passionate performer and civil rights advocate, Josephine Baker worked her way from the slums of St. Louis to the grandest stages in the world, proving what talent and determination can accomplish. In this Coretta Scott King Book Award winner, Patricia Hruby Powell uses rhythmic free verse to tell the unvarnished tale of Baker's rise to the top for readers up to 8, with additional information and resources for study in the back of the book. Christian Robinson's exuberantly painted illustrations are as bold and fresh as Baker herself.
