Agent Josephine-American Beauty, British Spy, French Hero
In March, I covered the book Sisters in Arms where the all black female battalion served in WWII and now here’s another woman of color to helped to defeat the Axis powers.

Josephine Baker, the Beyonce of her time, was a black American woman who had little opportunities here in the states, so she moved to France.
She became a massive success on stage as a performer, but when the Nazi’s moved in, they banned all people of color and Jews from performing.

In turn, she was a hero of the three countries in whose name she served—the US, France, and Britain
