The Day Louis Armstrong Made Noise

A wonderful story about Louis Armstrong, Grand Forks and the Civil Rights movement is re-told in the op-ed section of the New York Times today. "The Day Louis Armstrong Made Noise" recalls how the comments Mr. Armstrong made before an appearance at Central High School in Grand Forks to a young University of North Dakota journalism student moonlighting at the Grand Forks Herald fifty years ago this week reverberated around the country and around the world. It really is a great piece of history.
