The Dark Star From Harlem follows the journey of 19 year old Josephine Baker, from her arrival in Paris in 1925, as a company member of La Revue Negre, to her rise to stardom in Europe. Josephine is cast as the comic dancer who crosses her eyes and can’t keep up, but before long , her talent as a singer and “exotic” dancer, takes her to center stage and the launch of her career. As a young woman in a foreign land she navigates sudden fame, a new language, racial acceptance in Paris and the violent Jim Crow laws back home in America.
