#SatchmoFactoftheDay 11



#LouisArmstrong spoke up again about #CivilRights issues in #America. In 1965, after police attacked #peaceful marchers in #Selma, Ala., Armstrong told an interviewer that while he did not actively participate in parades or give long speeches, he contributed to the civil rights movement with money. "They would beat #Jesus if he was black and marched. Maybe I'm not in the front line, but I support them with my donations. My life is in my music. They would beat me on the mouth if I marched, and without my mouth I wouldn't be able to blow my horn," Armstrong said, according to his obituary by The New York Times.
