Josephine Baker: Red Cross Uniform
The final project for my Concept & Metaphors (Illustration 2) class. Create a series of 3 images for one of the given topics below. Mine was a "Series based on missionary work"
I choose Josephine Baker, an African-American entertainer and actress.
Baker was the first African American female to star in a major motion picture, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer.
She also assisted the French Resistance during World War II and being the first American-born woman to receive the highest French military honor, the Croix de Guerre.
This Illustration shows Josephine in her French army uniform.
