Lena Horne 1917 - 2010


My first memory of Lena Horne was seeing her in The Wiz as Glinda the Good Witch.  A few years later, I saw Stormy Weather with my great-aunt and uncle and I was mesmerized. As soon as I saw her I told my great-aunt, "She's pretty." and my aunt told me "That's Lena Horne." I must have hummed Stormy Weather for weeks after that. To this day, Stormy Weather remains one of my favorite movies.

Ms. Horne was so much more than a pretty face. Her legacy is amazing and should never be forgotten.

Rest in peace Lena Horne and thank you for all the doors you opened.
