Josephine Baker

The only woman to give a speech on August 28, 1963, was one and only Josephine Baker. Ms. Baker dressed in the uniform of French Army came to the March for Jobs and Freedom to address the crowd about her passion for equality. Although the most speech given that day came from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. those you heard Josephine Baker on August 28, 1963, were indeed truly blessed.
