What a full life she had full of great opportunties and tragedy as well. We should all take a page or two from her book on how she dealt with life.I remember my mother took me to see her in some performance as a kid. What style!

What a beautiful, beautiful lady. Today, just seeing some (comparatively recent) footage of her discussing her career, I thought . . heck forget singing, I could listen to that lady just TALK. She had THE most beautiful voice.

I'm not from the Deep South but from a part of the country where no doubt if those films were played sadly her songs were snipped too. So sad and for too many people probably still the case today.

An American trailblazer.

this made me sad to hear. unfortunately my first real exposure to the late ms. horne was through shows like sesame street and the cosby show (dr. huxtable had a long-standing crush on her), but i thought she was breathtaking, even in my youth.

she was elegant, classy, and aloof in a way that i still aspire to (and fall short, with my gregarious, off-colour, slightly offensive self). light-skinned or not, she was a black woman who fought hard to be recognized for her talents (and for the rights of other black actors/tresses and artists) and i think that is something that all of us as should recognize and be thankful for.

she paved the way.

thank you, lena.
RIP.

Oh, the stories she could tell. What an interesting, multi-dimensional life she lived. What a talent. I love the Bogart story. A beautiful, beautiful woman. May she rest in love and peace.

I just posted a tribute to Ms. Horne as well. She was an inspiration because she lived her life as she saw fit and by doing so re defined the expectations of color for both sides of the equation so that there was a middle ground for all to stand on. She will be missed.
