Lena Horne was a class act. We will miss her.

RIP Lena Horne, such a talented, beautiful, progressive woman. I always loved "Stormy Weather." I took one of those online quizzes that tells you what classic movie star you would be, and I got Lena Horne. I always loved her and everything she stood for.
Also, this: "By the 1960s, Horne was one of the most visible celebrities in the civil rights movement, once throwing a lamp at a customer who made a racial slur in a Beverly Hills restaurant" is awesome.
Did she do a cover of Rocky Raccoon? Anyway... RIP.
