Josephine Baker to be first black woman immortalised in France's Pantheon
Josephine Baker, the French-American dancer, singer and actress who mesmerised France with performances mocking colonialism and later joined the French Resistance, will become the first black woman to be immortalised in France's Pantheon mausoleum Tuesday. Baker will be just the sixth woman to join the around 80 great national figures of French history in the secular temple on Paris's Left Bank. She will also be the first showbiz figure to be honoured with a symbolic spot in the secular sanctuary, final resting place of a long list of luminaries from the worlds of politics, culture and science, including Victor Hugo, Emile Zola and Marie Curie.

Even as Baker was one of the most ardent lawyers. And Rokhaya Diallo to conclude: "At a time when immigration is at the heart of so many political tensions, and while color French still face discrimination, it will take more than the baker's elevation to show that The Republic has changed.
