I had stated earlier that she was married four times (probably got this off of imdb). But it turns out she was married either five (from imdb) or six (from wikipedia) times.

Foundry worker Willie Wells (1919, divorced) (Not on imdb)
Pullman porter William Howard Baker (1921, divorced)
Giuseppe Pepito Abatino (1926, publicity stunt, not legally binding)
French sugar magnate Jean Lion (1937-1940, divorced)
French orchestra leader Jo Bouillon (1947, separated 1957, eventually divorced)
American artist Robert Brady (married 1973, also not legally binding, separated 1974).

Pictured in 1927 with third husband Giuseppe Pepito Abatino.

Original caption from January 23rd, 1928--Paris, France: Photo shows Josephine Baker, the dark star of the Follies Bergere, as directrice of her own bar, or caberet. She seems to be "all business".

From 1929...I love the one where she's performing underneath a giant drawing of herself.

Undated photos, but probably from the late 1920s, early 1930s...

She was such a free spirit.

Actually, it's weird that I came across this thread because over the weekend on Fashion Rocks, Beyonce paid tribute too (ripped off) Josephine's banana dance.

I saw this photo on perezhilton.com, but I didn't want to resurrect the thread just for that (and then I came upon getty and corbis and all was right with the world). ( Perez has been posting a lot of photos of people Beyonce was "inspired by"/ripped off.)

Candids from 1933....

Love both of these: One looks to be in a hotel room after a show, holding a kitten and smiling for a friend's camera (for some reason this shot seems modern to me ). The other - the cute hat, the fantastic bangles, the tres chic outfit - Oo la la!

From 1935...I believe these were taken at the home of the photographer.
