'One day I realized I was living in a country where I was afraid to be black. It was only a country for white people. Not black. So I left. I had been suffocating in the United States…A lot of us left, not because we wanted to leave, but because we couldn't stand it anymore…' —Josephine Baker

in St. Louis Missouri, Baker was born on this day in 1906. She died April 1975, in Paris. Here she is in 1951.
