Ah Lena Horner...one of the most underrated beauties of the silver screen.

[1] Not sure who Lena Horner is, but I guess she could be beautiful too!

She was a beaut! I remember the full page ads in the Times for her one woman show when I was like 10 or 11 years old. My old man had a crush on her.

Hey guys, long before the Tuskegee Airmen, before Martin Luther King Jr, before the civil rights marches, and all the rest that we now consider 'Black History' Lena Horn showed white America and the world beyond that Black is Beautiful....
