Southern Circuit: Little Satchmo (Filmmaker in Attendance!)
60 min | John Alexander | $15
To the world, Louis Armstrong is iconic — a symbol of musical genius, unparalleled success, and unassailable character. To Sharon, he was simply Dad. Armstrong’s wholesome, non-threatening image preserved his singular career as a black performer with unfettered access to a white man’s world. Yet he was more than a caricature. In private, he held tightly to the things he loved. Perhaps closest to his heart was a child whom he hid from the world: a daughter sworn to a life of secrecy until now. Southern Circuit is made possible through a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
