#SatchmoFactoftheDay 2

Today's #SatchFact is, segregation drove #louisarmstrong to boycott his own state. In the year 1956 saw Louisiana prohibit integrated bands. Outraged, Armstrong refused to stage another concert within the state's borders. “They treat me better all over the world than they do in my hometown,” he said. “Ain’t that stupid? Jazz was born there and I remember when it was no crime for cats of any color to get together and blow.” Nine years later—after this ban had finally lifted—he again took the stage in New Orleans on October 31, 1965. #SatchmoFactofDay This #satchmofactoftheday was brought to you by @mental_floss! #SatchmoFactofDay #Satchmo #LouisArmstrong #BlackHistory #LittleKnownBlackHistoryFact #jazz#neworleans #theater #theatrearts #blackarts#MosaicSatchmo #Mosaic
