Movement Mondays: The Lena Horne Edition

Just found out that Ms. Lena Horne, no stranger to film or the stage passed away yesterday at the age of 92.  You never realize how important a figure will be to your childhood until you’re older.  Technology has made it very easy to find clips from the past.  I thought I’d share some of the moments I remember.  Obviously she was a stunner but she was also an activist.  Challenging the notions of beauty and civil rights.  Enjoy clips from her start in the 1930s to a remix Q-Tip did for the film Take the Lead.
