Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Remembering Lena Horne

Lena Horne, singer, actress and civil rights activist, passed away at 92 this past Sunday. Horne made a major impact as an African-American performer signed to a major Hollywood studio, MGM. Here she sings "Stormy Weather," one of the romantic standards from her repertoire, in the 1943 film of the same name. Horne displays the emotional expressiveness that won her widespread acclaim.
