Video | Haiti, you are my only paradise! Macron decided to bury black singer Frieda Josephine Baker in the French Pantheon

Sunday August 22, 2021 ((rezonodwes.com)) – Born June 3, 1906 in St. Louis, United States, and naturalized in French on November 30, 1937, Frieda Josephine McDonald’s or Josephine Baker will soon enter the French National Pantheon.

A burial on November 30 will make the famous singer, magazine leader and Franco-American resistance leader, buried in Monaco, the first black woman to rest in this prestigious secular cemetery.

Emmanuel Macron, in fact, agreed to highlight the star, a true and memorable icon of the 1920s, who died in 1975, who worked so much for women’s liberation and the black cause.

A dancer from a young age, she tried her luck in France in 1925 with her program La Revue nègre. Josephine Baker had sung at the Champs-Elysées theater, before signing a contract in 1927 with Théâtre des Folies Bergères.

She was also committed to ending American segregation.

Josephine Baker has five husbands, the first at thirteen. She adopted twelve children of all origins and named her Rainbow Tribe.

Uh! Who will take my country back?
Haiti
You are my only paradise
Haiti
Uh! God reminds me
Your forests are so beautiful
Your great prospects
away from your shores
the most beautiful cage
It’s just a prison
Yes !! My desire, the cry of love
Haiti
He will come back to you someday

Oh, beautiful blue country
Far, far away under another sky
I was having happy days
But it’s all over
Alone in exile today
I sing with a broken heart

Yes ! My desire is the cry of love
Haiti
He will come back to you someday
Haiti!!!
