Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature designed to celebrate TV and Film’s brightest moments and honour our creative ancestors.
Today, we revisit the life of Lena Horne.
Born on June 30th 1917, the entertainer was born in Bedford-Stuyvesant and was the descendant of an enslaved Senegalese girl as well as the seventh vice President of the United States John C. Calhoun according to some reports.
Her uncle, Frank S. Horne, would go on to become adviser to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and raised her between 1927 and 1929. Undoubtedly inspired by her family’s rich legacy, Horne would go on to carve one of her own in the fall of 1933 when she launched what would become a groundbreaking career.
Join us below as we revisit some of her best and brightest moments.

Taking to Instagram Thursday (July 2) to give followers a sneak peek at its DAPS-directed music video, look inside to see the trio turn all the way up:
August Alsina is doubling down on his comments about Jada Pinkett Smith.
As widely reported, the R&B star left jaws ajar when he revealed that he was romantically involved with the married actress – and allegedly had the blessing of her husband Will Smith.
Before then, the New Orleans reared crooner took to to Instagram to share a lengthy letter standing by his statement and revealing that “everyone got courtesy calls time in advance.”
It’s only been two months since his unexpected release from jail, but it appears Tekashi 6ix9ine – already on his third single since the prison break – is trying to make up for lost time.
Following two Hot 100 top 5 hits – ‘GOOBA’ and the Nicki Minaj-assisted chart-topper ‘TROLLZ’ – 6ix9ine is back with a Spanish single, ‘YAYA.’
Paying homage to his Latin roots, the Reggaeton-doused tune sees its Canon F8 & David Wept-directed music video borrow elements from its two predecessors: a kaleidoscope of color, scantily-clad models, and shot in a living room.

Talk a Good Game has taken on a double-meaning once or twice in the life of R&B superstar Kelly Rowland, she revealed in a tell-all recent interview her pastor Erwin McManus.
Answering a series of deeply personal and professional questions during the nearly hourlong chat, the GRAMMY winner spoke candidly about the mutual decision she and husband, Tim Witherspoon, came to cut professional ties and focus solely on their marriage.
As if that wasn’t enough, she also discussed at length money woes she suffered in the past trying to “keep up” a certain look. Taking to the platform, Rowland said:
“No one would believe this and actually this would be my first time talking about it, but I almost lost everything because I was so busy trying to keep up… Whether it was the look, whether it was the wardrobe, whether it was the car, whether it was the place… all of that silliness!”

Indeed, odd claims of “appropriating” African culture were made — despite hundreds of African creatives being employed at every level of the production. From directors, to producers, to stylists, to on-screen talent, Africa is at the front and center what the singer has expressed is a passion project and – more importantly – a celebration of the Motherland.
Now, her own Mom has weighed in and she’s not holding back.
