A Tribute: Lena Horne

Lena_Horne_in_Till_the_Clouds_Roll_By_2Lena Mary Calhoun Horne, was once considered the most beautiful woman in the world. With her tall thin body, her long dark hair, her perfectly voluptuous curves and her beautiful ebony skin, Lena Horne was an icon.

She was an African American woman who broke racial barriers just by existing. Her shape and look was so different from the mammy stereotype of the time,  paving the way for African American singers and actresses.

Lena Mary Calhoun Horne, was born June 30, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. In her biography she stated that on the day she was born, her father was in the midst of a card game trying to get money to pay the hospital costs.

Visible Lives

Receiving a great deal of publicity for her new book, A Golddigger’s Guide, successful CEO and author Baje Fletcher schools aspiring women on how to play the game to get what they want.

On the rough road to Hollywood, countless beauties searching for fame and fortune become overwhelmed by the seedy advances of self-proclaimed “powerful men” who promise to make them a household name. Such men include sleazy executives, producers, entertainers, sports stars and even corporate professionals who prey on unsuspecting, beautiful women naïvely ready to “do anything for fame.”

When these men get to star model and author Baje Fletcher however, the game gets flipped on them and she’s taking no prisoners in the process. Having been there and done that, or at the very least, observed the effects such “poor choices” have had on other women, Baje is turning the tables and making a profit.
