Fierce and fearless beauty of the week: Lena Horne

By Briana Booker

Although Lena Horne, died Sunday, May 9th, 2010 at age 92. She is still fierce and fearless!  Horne, was a remarkable, show-stopping, and beautiful entertainer. She has been through the ups and the downs, battling racism continuously during her career. Horne never let her adversaries stop her from her dreams! She was the first black leading lady in Hollywood and won acclaim as a singer!

She is everything we hope our readers learn to be as women- elegant, sexy, humble, independent and a little sassy. Horne was known to be a "Negro Cinderella" because she was not always those outstanding traits. As an young woman she was insecure, frustrated and bitter about many things in life.  Her signature song is Stormy weather.

The following quotation touched my soul:

 "As the Negro beautiful enough -- in a Caucasian fashion -- for white Americans to accept."

 I still can not understand why society forces people to be forced into being  beautiful enough for someone who does not look nor know what you had to do to get where you are today, to be "successful". I can not imagine how she got through it during a time when the only black women figures in Hollywood were casted as servants and prostitutes.

I like to thank her for the struggle she dealt with to path the way for not only black women,but all women in Hollywood. Rest in Peace Lena Horn.
