Satchmo



The Forsyth County Public Library will offer a special tribute to Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong for our tribute to Black History Month.

When I was but a wee thing, I used to sneak into my father's home office and completely distract him by asking endless questions about the music he played while working, which included Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and my personal favorite, Fats Domino.

My father would push his chair back from his desk, stand up and say, "Come dance with me, pumpkin," then hold out his hands to me. I'd step up onto the tops of his feet and cling to him for what seemed like hours.
