Original Autograph Card, SIGNED and inscribed by Lena Horn (1917-2010). At the age of sixteen Lena Horn began her career as a singer and dancer at the Cotton Club in 1933, and over the next six decades went on to become one of the great and most versatile figures in American popular culture. She was a consummate night club performer, multi-Grammy award winning jazz and pop singer, acted in countless films after becoming the first African American to be signed to a major movie contract, and was a constant and effective advocate for civil rights. 3" by 5" white, light card stock, near fine with a touch of creasing to bottom edge, small photo of Horn tipped to bottom left of verso with her name and "Duchess of Idaho" (a reference to a movie in which Horn had appeared in 1950), noted in pencil at the top edge of verso; with a fine, bold signature in black marker without loss, skipping or fading. Original autograph of an iconic American entertainer. J1781
