Join us in honoring Josephine Baker

The NFT digital art collection, minted as NFTs available on NFT marketplace OpenSea, originated from a request by the French Consulate to create a portrait in honor of Josephine Baker’s 2021 induction into the Pantheon.

Unveiled during the 2021 Miami Art Week, the location was especially significant, as in 1951, Josephine Baker’s refusal to perform for a segregated crowd at the Copa City Club in Miami Beach led to integration sweeping across the US.

Josephine Baker represented #BlackGirlMagic long before Black Twitter made the term popular. Born in 1906, the year Black Wall Street was founded in the Greenwood district of Tulsa, Oklahoma, she was the first Black woman to become a world-famous entertainer. Her important works also include being a wartime hero, spy, and civil rights activist for Black Americans, notably for being the only official female speaker at the March on Washington, standing at the side of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

He's a giant, and not just because he stands six feet eight inches. For more than a decade, Addonis Parker, owner of Art Forever Studios in Liberty City, Miami has concentrated on improving the world through paint and brush.

From teaching art to at-risk youth, to completing large-scale mural commissions (such as his 55-foot-tall sunset on a public housing project), to participating in museum shows that celebrate black history and culture, Parker is a man on a mission to "do something historical."

Over the decades, Addonis has won a litany of commendations.
