OldOldLady Of The Hills

You know, she was a Big Star! Broadway, Films, Nighclubs, Records....Maybe not in the way people think of "stars" today, but....Films never really used her talents as they could have and that WAS because of the color of her skin....Almost all the films she made, the section she was in could be cut out easily, and was---in the South.
But...her Nightclub career was fantastic! And her recording career too, PLUS, Broadway. So, in spite of the horrific obstacles presented by racism, Lena Horne Triumphed! I was lucky enough to see her one-woman show "LENE HORNE, The Lady and Her Music", three times! It was fantastic and she won a Tony Award for it.
A sad day, last Sunday.
