Lena Horne: 1917 – 2010


We’re saddened to hear that the legendary Lena Horne has passed away at the age of 92. A pioneer in the entertainment industry, Lena Horne broke color barriers as the first black performer to receive a long term contract by a major Hollywood studio.  Check out some of our favorite Lena Horne photos and her performance on The Cosby Show below. RIP to our soror.
