They don't make legends like her anymore.

GET INTO THAT LIGHTING BEHIND HER "STORMY WEATHER" PERFORMANCE!

When you are fabulous, well dressed and present, you don't need anything but great lighting and a mike!!!

LENA HORNE, ladies and gentlemen!

FLIGHTS OF ANGELS SING THEE TO THY REST!

Sometimes we as black people take for granted the blessing we have today versus what life was 60 years ago.

Ostend Street

One of the world's great beauties.

The legendary Canadian theater critic Nathan Cohen closed the most glowing review I have ever read with the words: "Lena Horne, I love you." That says it all.

60 years ago...it was still better to be lena horne...a glittering jewel ignored by the white masses and the moviegoing public...than to be a maid, chauffeur or pullman porter working for the same small-minded individuals...

it's a shame that lena horne, dorothy dandridge, juanita moore, harry belafonte and countless more didn't get the recognition or substantial parts they deserved.

still, sixty years ago, it was even harder just being an ordinary negro trying to survive and feed one's family while being humilated, demeaned and shut out of the larger society...

Fabulous!
