Abbey Lincoln

Abbey Lincoln (August 6, 1930 – August 14, 2010) was an American jazz vocalist, songwriter, and actress. Beginning in the 1960s, she made a career out of delivering deeply felt presentations as well as writing and singing her own material. Her lyrics often reflected the ideals of the civil rights movement and helped in generating passion for the cause in the minds of her listeners. She explored more philosophical themes during the later years of her songwriting career and remained professionally active until well into her seventies. She also ventured into acting and appeared on television, and in films such as The Girl Can't Help It and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. This photograph shows Lincoln in performance at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and is part of the collection of Anefo, a Dutch photograph press agency.
