#SatchmoFactoftheDay 10


#LouisArmstrong was long silent publicly on race issues, something that angered some of his #African-American fans.

Then, in 1957, angry #segregationists and the #Arkansas National Guard tried to prevent nine black students from entering a Little Rock high school. Armstrong told the media, "The way they are treating my people in the South, the government can go to hell!" He also criticized popular #President Dwight D. Eisenhower for not actively intervening in the incident, saying, "The president has no guts!"
