Description by OLDIES.com:

In this intimate history, her daughter writes the story not only of Lena Horne's dramatic life and career, but also the story of the Horne family of Brooklyn, a saga of pride, achievements, and remarkable individual personalities that reveals America's historic family secret, the black bourgeoisie. In its superb recreation of the rise of a family from slavery to fame and fortune, and its candid portrayal of the trials as well as the triumphs of the star who was heiress to a treasured tradition, The Hornes is at once a stunning portrait of America's black elite and a riveting multigenerational family saga. Features over 65 black-and-white photographs.
