Thanks for the tribute to Lena Horne. I have always thought she was a true talent and a class act to boot. Not only was she a pioneer and a legend but also a true humanitarian as well. She will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Ms. Horne.
What a generation of phenomenal women!!!!! Dr. Height, Ms. Horne and the list goes on. I was fortunate to have Ms. Horne as a mentor in the early stages of my career which began in my teens. I felt her soul so deeply and the disillusionment of “expensive beds that don’t give you rest.” She was a bundle of class, sass, and grit in her craw. She was real! –I join you in paying tribute to a woman, an African American woman who claimed her freedom by her own terms. She has greatly informed my feminist views. Rest in peace, beautiful soul and elder.
