Beyond biography: a legendary performer’s legacy of symbolism

 

The New York Times - Kaiama L. Glover

Still, Baker has inspired several biographies and documentaries, and the question arises about the need for yet another. But Bennetta Jules-Rosette, the author of Black Paris and other books, makes a solid case for just one more with her well-researched and original Josephine Baker in Art and Life. Like many writers before her, Jules-Rosette is clearly captivated by her subject, but she manages to temper her star-struck curiosity with impressive intellectual rigor.
