43-year-old Josephine Baker is being served prosciutto & melon in Venice in 1949. Today (October 25) is my 43rd birthday and to celebrate, I thought I would post photos of some of my favorite VBG legends at the age of 43. Sadly, too many did not make it to 43 (Dorothy Dandridge, Dinah Washington, Diana Sands, Lorraine Hansberry) but many did and did it well. Photo by Archivio Cameraphoto Epoche/Getty Images.
