This event is part of the University of Nottingham's Black History Month activities.

Josephine Baker became an original 20th Century icon. Dancer, actor, activist, campaigner, spy and mother to the multicultural Rainbow Tribe, Josephine truly broke the mould. But almost 50 years after her death, Café Josephine, a down-at-heel New York diner dedicated to her memory faces closure.

Nobody remembers Josephine, what she did and stood for. With a Harlem Renaissance-inspired score and spring-heeled Charleston dancing, Josephine blurs the real and imaginary as we follow her story from St Louis slums and into the hearts of the world.
