  • I grew up in East St. Louis and I was extremely poor. 
  • When I was 19 years old I moved to New York to become a dancer and I became extremely respected and well known. 
  • I grew tired of the racism in the United States so I moved to Paris in 1921. 
  • I travelled back to the United States in the 1940's and was discouraged by the segregation still happening. It was not happening in Paris. 
  • After my performance I returned to Paris where I lived the rest of my life. 
  • I died in 1975 and I am buried in Paris.
