Lena Horne, a jazz singer, dancer, actress, and political activist, has died at the ripe old age of 92.

Born in 1917, Horne lived through the years when black people were treated as second-class citizens, which somewhat limited her early opportunities, right through until Barack Obama was elected to be President of the United States. Quite a life.

Horne will be remembered by different people for different things. Some will remember her as a jazz singer in her heydays of the 1940s and 1950s, some will remember her as an actress through the 1950s and 1960s, while others still will remember her for pushing for civil rights for all throughout her career.

It’s sad when anyone dies, and when it’s a celebrity known and loved by millions dies it affects a lot of people. However, Lena Horne clearly had a very long and full life, and will be remembered for a long time to come.
