Lena Horne, June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010

She was honored on this years Academy Awards...

I was fortunate to see her perform in New York City in the early '80's at Carnegie Hall. Incredible Jazz !

She was an American singer, actress, civil rights activist and dancer.

A favorite of mine...

Stormy Weather, a 1943 Musical Film thought of as a "time capsule" with some of the top African-American performers of the time, during an era when black actors and singers rarely appeared in lead roles in mainstream Hollywood productions, especially of the genre, musicals.
