Josephine Baker was a huge star and possibly the world’s first Afro-American celebrity.

After great success, she had greater bad-luck and racial issues and by the mid-1960s, Josephine had used up her entire fortune.

A period of dark days overwhelmed her and her children, when Brigitte Bardot and Princess Grace personally came to help her.

Bardot helped her financially and then Princess Grace invited her to Monaco, helping with funds raised at galas held in the Principality, offering her a home for life in Monaco.
