Cabin in the Sky

Lena Horne, Cabin in the Sky, drawing, Tiffany Osedra Miller

Lena Horne was laid to rest yesterday. I drew this while ruminating on her life and legacy.

I love it. The black and white, her cheekbones, her story. You must know that she was refused the part of the mixed race lead in "Showboat" because she was black. It was given to a white woman. Another injustice in the world. She was beautiful. As are you.
