Josephine Baker (1906-1975), dancer and activist, wrote articles about racism in America in the 1950s. She refused to perform for segregated audiences and this helped to integrate her audiences. She suffered threats from the Klu Klux Klan and charged the Stork Club with racism. Grace Kelly supported her and they stormed out together. Baker worked with the NAACP and was rejected by blacks who feared her radicalism. She spoke in Washington next to Martin Luther King, Jr.
