Little Satchmo

A Film Screening Hosted by Green Book of Tampa Bay


The Studio@620 welcomes Green Book of Tampa Bay as they host a screening of “Little Satchmo”.

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.

Along with screening the film, the event will also feature conversation with Sharon who will also participate in a panel discussion focusing on the film’s themes of finding your voice, family secrets, and relationships with fathers.

Saucin Wings food truck will be available for food purchases. Doors open at 6:30, film begins at 7PM. This event is in partnership with the Woodson African American Museum of Florida. This event is sponsored by the Pinellas County Urban League and its affinity groups; PCUL Guild, Young Professionals & NULITES.
