PARIS, 19 NOV – The Panthéon in Paris will open its doors for free on 4 and 5 December on the occasion of the “entrance” of the remains of Joséphine Baker: this is what the Center des Monuments Nationaux (CMN) announces. The Franco-American artist and anti-racist militant, born in 1906, will “enter” the republican mausoleum dedicated to the personalities who have marked the history of France on November 30th. She will be the first black woman to enter the French Pantheon and the sixth woman overall. The last to enter was Simome Veil, in 2018. (ANSA).
