SummaryJoin the Central Library’s Low Vision Readers Book Group for a discussion of "The Hornes: An American Family" by Gail Lumet Buckley.
Book DescriptionThe daughter of Lena Horne, Buckley presents a history which spans six generations of an American family. Based on voluminous papers kept by the Hornes since the mid-nineteenth century, the book sheds light on a facet of black society which Buckley believes has gone unrecognized. Buckley also records the Horne family's activities in the fight for civil rights.
