New York, NY
Photograph by Eve Arnold
At the Roxy on a comeback tour after finding fame in a more tolerant Europe. The next year, Baker would famously take on the Stork Club for refusing her service. There would also be a 100,000-strong neighborhood parade on the NAACP-declared Josephine Baker Day: May 20, 1951.
