I wish we had some of that informa- tion when he was in his early teens. I would have liked information about dealing with a minor’s education while they are working as actors. His school principal and some of his teachers weren’t thrilled when he took days off to tape a show or commercial. Tey didn’t see the education in it. Tey equated it to working at 7-11 or McDonald’s. Mary Del Negro Mother of Anthony Bernard Del Negro New York Division REMEMBERING LENA Tank you for remembering my mother, entertainer Lena Horne, and all the other SAG members who passed over. It is good to know before one goes to the other side that somebody cares. From another SAG member, thank you, thank you, thank you. Ginger Hayton Horne Hollywood Division MOVING BEYOND RACE Just finished reading the summer 2010 Screen Actor. I bridled when I read Lena Horne’s obituary where it states she was one of the best known African American performers. In truth, she was one of the planet’s best known performers, period. You didn’t state that Kathleen Freeman was one of the best known European performers, referring to her heritage. It’s important to remember we are a nation of immigrants.

We are all humans and to that end, and that end only, should we acknowledge each other as such. Te bottom line: Lena Horne was dynamite, the real thing. Morton Lewis Hollywood Division E-SCREEN ACTOR Although I really enjoy your magazine, and think it’s beautifully produced, I’m wondering if you might start offering us members the option to opt out of the hard copy, and instead receive an online version of Screen Actor. Not only would this save SAG (us) money, it would also be good for the environment. Just a thought.
