The LEH and Satchmo Summerfest marked their second year of partnership in delivering humanities programs to the popular New Orleans festival, a celebration of native son Louis Armstrong’s life and music. Louisiana Cultural Vistas produced the print program for the Satchmo Symposium, a series of panel discussions, film screenings, and lectures at Le Petit Theater du Vieux Carré in the French Quarter.
