Josephine Baker St. Louis


In a speech before the audience at Kiel Auditorium, Baker said:

“I wanted to find freedom of soul and spirit. I wanted to do things to help freedom come to my people. I was ready to fight, if necessary to obtain it. I wanted to feel that I was a human being and that we were all human beings.”


February, 1952
