Satchmo And Little Rock

Satchmo speaks out!!

Satchmo Tells Off Ike, U.S.!


Louis Armstrong tells off, then President Eisenhour and the government, on their response to the failed attempt to integrate a school in Little Rock, Arkansas. This article was published on September 29, 2017 with the title “LOUIS ARMSTRONG AND LITTLE ROCK: 60 YEARS LATER”. I have always held the position that “music speaks too the human condition”, so it stands to reason that musicians that make the music, have views on society in general. While this read isn’t what one would call a short 5 minute read, it is certainly interesting and thought provoking. Follow the link below.
