Rod, thank you for your extensive coverage on the life and legacy of Miss Horne. For some reason her death has affected me. She was always a part of my life as far back as I can remember. She was a star to a little black gay boy (and his grandmother). I associate her passing with the end of an era. I also think it's important that she not be dismissed as just another pretty face. She was so much more to me and many others in the Black community.

Dallas Cowboy

What Freeleo said.

I grew up in the 70s and back can remember running the teevee when black folks were on. Diahann Carroll Lena Horne and Nancy Wilson were among my favorites. Lena was so glamorus, so polished and such inspiration to this little Black gay boy.

Let me also thank you Rod. The Lena Horne coverage at the blog has been fantastic.
