Josephine Baker was an incredible woman. She was a spy for the french resistance in WWII, a figure of the American civil right movement on top of being a sex symbol. She earned several honors for her work, using her fame and sex appeal to slip into and out of nations in active war, passing on invaluable espionage messages. She adopted children from all over the world in a bid to fight racism. She was proud and openly bisexual. She was the only woman to speak at the 1963 March on Washington. She's actually a personal hero of mine. Maybe do like a little research before making comments belittling her importance?

Amen to that! She was an amazing woman and trail blazer. Now would be the time to make a movie about her life. I think it would be a perfect role for Taraji P. Henson. She has the talent, looks, and attitude to pull it off.

Not sticking up for @Malbaby, he can defend himself, but I was going to ask who Josephine Baker was as well. I had never heard of her. I suspect @Malbaby was in a similar boat to me. Thanks for saving me a trip to Google, she sounds like an impressive lady.

i'd give the role to Janelle Monae, not Taraji. and i can't understand how someone could ever question the relevance of Josephine Baker's presence in a list of historical figures

I have to fall into the grasp of those who knew of her but didn't know what she looked like. Looks like she can do the Charleston better than me too.

Malbaby's comment was pretty dumb, but, in fairness, that is also a fairly silly-looking picture.

Put me with the 84% who missed it. I never heard of her. I was trying dancers and actresses from the Roarin' Twenties - but my admission of ignorance in no way is meant to discount her importance.

Picasso with hair! I'm not used to it but the face is definitely the same.

I don't think I've ever seen a photo of him. He looks nothing like I pictured him in my mind. His head isn't shaped like a triangle, his eyes aren't on the same side of his face, his mouth is below his nose... :)

Part of the 8% that got Benjamin Disraeli. I am glad I got him, since I have currently started writing a book about him.

Could you please accept Matoaka for Pocahantas, as that was her actual name? Pocahantas was only a nickname.
