By 1957, Louis Armstrong's reputation as America's "Ambassador of Goodwill," was well-established, although damaged slightly by the press surrounding his support of the "Little Rock Nine". By the time he arrived in Argentina, the first stop on his five country tour, all was forgotten and forgiven.
At each of his 67 concerts in South America, Armstrong was treated like a king. This exhibit showcases the souvenirs that he brought back from this tour: records, tapes, magazines and photographs. For more information, visit louisarmstronghouse.org.
