Do you know her? If you had lived 100 years ago, you would - she was famous . . . even scandalous! Josephine Baker was an African-American who achieved true fame when she moved to Paris. A dancer (and later a spy for France), during her Danse Sauvage she wore only a skirt of fake bananas. Ahh, the 20s
