More About The Josephine Baker Critical Reader by Mae G. Henderson; Charlene B. Regester
 
 
 
Overview

Star of stage and screen, cultural ambassador, civil rights and political activist—Josephine Baker was defined by the various public roles that made her 50-year career an exemplar of postmodern identity. Her legacy continues to influence modern culture more than 40 years after her death. This new collection of essays interprets Baker's life in the context of modernism, feminism, race, gender and sexuality. The contributors focus on various aspects of her life and career, including her performances and public reception, civil rights efforts, the architecture of her unbuilt house, and her modern-day "afterlife."
