A friend posted this on Facebook, The Five Most Bad Ass Teams of Famous People to Ever Join Forces....
...which made me think of one of my favorite famous teams, Princess Grace of Monaco and Josephine Baker, who fought racism together--not as dramatic as the other examples, but much more epic.
In 1951, back when racism was still wildly popular, Josephine was refused service at the Stork Club because she was black. Grace Kelly was so incensed by this, "she stormed out with her entire party and refused to go back. And never did." The two became lifelong friends.
Wouldn't you love to have been a fly on the wall when these two got together at the palace, when the tiara and the glass slippers were off and they could just kick back, two girlfriends together?
