Here's a good DYK for Black History Month...

DYK...Josephine Baker was not only known in Paris for her exotic Banana Dance, but she was one of the early celebrities to stand for Civil Rights in her birth country The United States!

Another DYK...Grace Kelly was at The Stork Club when Baker was kicked-out in 1951. Once Kelly heard about that, she and Baker became close friends until Baker's death in 1975! Grace Kelly even helped Josephine Baker out of bankruptcy when Kelly became princess of Monaco!
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.
