The article discusses the successful U.S. comeback of African American female performer Josephine Baker at the Copa City night club in Miami, Florida in 1951. She was reportedly not appreciated in her own land and had moved to Paris, France in 1925 where she achieved fame and fortune in the 1930s and 40s. It is stated that Baker's previous return engagements were marked by discriminations, but that she was able to secure the admission of patrons without discrimination to her Copa City performances, which advanced the cause of civil rights.
