Joséphine Baker,
the unchained dancer

Pauline Sciot, Marianne Stjepanovic
A young American black girl dances all the way to Paris to escape from misery. Becoming the famous Josephine Baker, she dedicates her life to fighting against racism with her only arms of dancing, the joy of living and her generosity.
  • Pauline Sciot is trained as a graphic artist. She graduated from ESAG Penninghen. A lover of photography and illustration, she enjoyed relating the lives of François Truffaut, Charlie Chaplin, or Joséphine Baker with the tip of her brush, for the “Seeds and Guides” collection.

  • Marianne Stjepanovic After literary studies, Marianne Stjepanovic worked as a librarian. Before long, she went back to her favorite domain: imagination and telling stories. She writes biographies, short stories, and children’s stories.

We speak of it!
  • This very accessible text, even for the youngest, relates the life of Josephine Baker. We like the elegant drawings in black and white which punctuate the tale and the small format, very practical for small hands.

    Histoires vraies n°224
  • Joséphine Baker, the unchained dancer, is a little book in the Seeds and guides collection which we have already told you about here. A great collection which, each time, presents us with a man or a woman who has left their mark on history and culture. Put together as short novels, subtly illustrated, they are always fascinating reads. Thus here, we are going to know better the life of this dancer who left her mark on the France of the 1920s and whose generosity still remains famous
