Some folks think that Lena Horne's signature song is "Stormy Weather"
but her real signature is "NOW". For her politics, Lena Horne was
black(white)listed; she was dedicated to justice, and "NOW" is
probably the song she cared for most. The great filmmaker, Cuba's
Santiago Alvarez, captured the essence of Lena Horne's "NOW" in his
1964 short documentary about the Civil Rights struggle in this
country. Please go to the link for "Commentary" below; then scroll
down to "R.I.P. Lena Horne, 1917-2010" and experience Alvarez's
amazing view of the Civil Rights struggle with Lena Horne's "NOW" as
a virtual anthem. If anyone questions why many people at that time
became revolutionaries, here is the answer.
