Discover the fascinating and singular life story of Josephine Baker — actress, singer, dancer, Civil Rights activist, member of the French Resistance during the Second World War, and a woman dedicated to erasing prejudice and creating a more equitable world — in 'Josephine Baker’s Last Dance'.

In this illuminating biographical novel, Sherry Jones brings to life Josephine's early years in servitude and poverty in America, her rise to fame as a showgirl in her famous banana skirt, her activism against discrimination, and her many loves and losses.
