Who could bring Jean-Claude Baker, dance historian Elizabeth Kendall, and New York Times critic Margo Jefferson to the same birthday celebration? The answer is Josephine Baker, the great African-American singer, dancer, actress, and activist who took France by storm in the 1920s and whose centenary is being marked in 2007. Canape joins in the celebration of a woman who built her own bridges between France and the USA.
