Lena Horne

Posted by Al Hathaway Monday, May 10, 2010

We are rapidly losing our iconic images. People whose life has had a major impact on our culture and community. We add to that list Ms. Lena Horne, the ultimate definition of a diva. Graced with beauty, class and poise she crossed over way before it was popular and defined an early image of beauty. Her acting, dancing, and singing career spanned over seventy decades which demonstrated her staying power and her ability to survive and transcend shifts and trends in her field. The simply mention of her name invoked an image of a powerful woman. She was able to keep much of her personal life private. Nevertheless, she was involved in the Civil Rights movement and lent her celebrity status to causes that uplifted all people. She joins the illustrious legend of leaders who we have so recently lost: Dr. Benjamin Hooks and Dr. Dorothy Height. God is calling home to their eternal rests leaders in His army who have fought the good fight and have kept the course. Lena Horne a beautiful queen!
