At Miami's Art Basel week, the From Paris With Love NFT collection will be premiered and the Le Art Noir event will be the destination for the same.

#BlackGirlMagic was represented by Josephine Baker in the past even before Black Twitter spread the term. For the very first time, Black Wall Street was founded in the Greenwood district of Tulsa. Oklahoma who was born in 1906 was the founder of the same. She's the first Black woman to be recognized as a world-famous entertainer. 

Ms. Baker was awarded $10,000 in 1951; on behalf of the Copa City Club in Miami Beach. Yet, Baker said 'NO' to the performance. The Copa in the end responded to her demands. Her demand for mixed audiences led to merging live entertainment shows throughout the U.S. including Miami & Las Vegas.

Famous painting exhibition

The famous painting 'From Paris with Love' by Addonis Parker – the internationally celebrated artist will be exhibited in the French Consulate in Miami on November 28, 2021. 

"I applaud Josephine Baker's strength at such a young age. I also admire the focus on her mission during her life", states Addonis Parker.

Ms. Baker will be honored on November 30, 2021. The venue for the honor will be the Pantheon monument. She will be the first Black woman ever to acquire one of the highest honors in France. The NFT premiere that's going to occur in Miami is crucial because Josephine Baker is celebrated for her work in collaboration with Miami clubs.
