The diva inhabits and elicits desire that exceeds and implicates the normal. Lena Horne’s 1963 duet with July Garland embodies a model for the ways a Black diva disciplines her body to occupy desire while simultaneously maneuvering against the disciplining clutches of racist desires that circumscribe her body.
