I agree that Lena Horne's connection to Broadway doesn't feel very strong, but it's not THAT big of a mystery. The point is to select a Black artist, and Horne has a history with the Nederlanders. AND she's legendary--which I think is a big part of the choice. I've racked my brain and can't think of a more legendary, household name type Black artists WITH a more robust reputation tied to Broadway. And then we're also back to the fact that is the Nederlander's choice for one of their theatres, and there's a connection there.
