    RIP, she was a legend. Much admired in the black community for her trailblazing. My paternal grandfather use to tell me she was the black man's pin up girl.

    She will be remembered for her astounding talent, her astonishing beauty and her indomitable spirit as long as her films, TV appearances and recordings exist.

    I hope the last two generations of performers, as well as future ones, appreciate what she and others endured and fought for so that the lives of all people of color would be easier and freer.

    She was a beauty well into her old age, and an immense talent. . She will be missed.

    She was fantastic. Great singer, classic beauty and a hint of sassiness to her personality. RIP, Lena.

    What you said. She was one classy lady who rose above it all.

    Sigh...another of my favorite performers has gone to her reward. What a talented performer and what a role model for aspiring African-American performers. We can take comfort in that she lived a very long and full life. RIP.

    Edited to add: Lena Horne fans should read "The Hornes: An American Family" by Lena's daughter, Gail Lumet Buckley.

    I'd love to see the bubble bath scene that they cut from "Cabin in the Sky" 'cause it was too sexy...
