"You have to be taught to be second class; you're not born that way." Actress, singer and civil rights activist Lena Horne believed these words. When she entered show business in the 1930s, she was determined  to carry herself with dignity.  When she started acting in movies, she was determined not to portray just maids or nannies.  Come along and learn more about this remarkable woman.  You may not know who she is now, but you will be glad you learned about her life.

SUBJECTS:    Biographies.
