“I shall dance all my life…I would like to die, breathless, spent, at the end of a dance.” – Josephine Baker

Josephine Baker found joy in Paris, France and created joy in the U.S., where her insistence on mixed audiences helped integrate live entertainment, beginning in Miami and sweeping across the United States. This NFT celebrates her sense of humor and style which were joyful “weapons” that changed the world.

From Paris With Love - by Addonis collection image
Addonis’ NFT series From Paris With Love originated from being requested by the French Consulate of Miami to create a portrait in honor of Josephine Baker’s 2021 induction into the Pantheon, making her the first Black woman to receive one of the highest honors in France. In 1925, Baker moved to Europe, fleeing US discrimination. She became the most famous woman in the world for her singing and dancing, as well as the highest paid entertainer of her time. When WWII hit, Josephine fought against the Nazis as a spy for the French Resistance and was awarded the highest order of merit for military and civil action. She returned to the US for the March on Washington, where she spoke just before Dr. Martin Luther King gave his “I Have a Dream” oration. This NFT collection connects the important moments in Ms. Baker’s life: the Pantheon in Paris, French Consulate of Miami, the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center, and the world via web 3.0.
