Josephine Baker was considered a “black goddess” and took Paris by storm. US audiences loved Eubie Blake’s ragtime piano playing and compositions for American musicals. Both lived in times of extreme racial prejudice and surmounted obstacles that kept so many from realizing goals and dreams. Join us as we celebrate the music of these great artists with Blake’s famous “I’m Just Wild About Harry” and “The Charleston Rag” and Baker’s “Don’t Touch My Tomatoes” and “Besame Mucho.”
