AS Monaco paid tribute to the American actress and singer this Sunday afternoon on the sidelines of the meeting against RC Strasbourg Alsace.
On the occasion of Joséphine Baker’s entry into the Pantheon on Tuesday, November 30, and the national tribute paid to this figure of the twentieth century, AS Monaco triggered the memory of the American activist, deeply linked to Monaco, where she has rested since her disappearance in 1975.
Jeannot Bouillon-Baker, his son, indeed gave the fictitious kickoff of the meeting this Sunday afternoon between AS Monaco and RC Strasbourg (1-1).

They were received by Oleg Petrov, Vice-President Director General of AS Monaco, a few moments before the meeting on the TheCorner terrace of the Stade Louis-II.
Licra Monaco, in which Joséphine Baker worked for a long time and of which she remains an honorary member, was represented by its president Eric Fissore and Rachid Boudni, member of the sports commission.
