Silver Screen: Little Satchmo

Closing out 2023, Docs In Progress is proud to present LITTLE SATCHMO, Emmy-winning documentary on the secret daughter of Louis Armstrong, directed by John Alexander. Little Satchmo is part of our December Silver Screen Series.

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.

Register and join us in person on Tuesday, December 12 for a screening of the film and a conversation with Sharon Folta,  the daughter of Louis Armstrong.
