Louis Armstrong Time Magazine KING ZULU, 1949
The Krewe of Zulu is a predominantly African-American group that was formed as a parody of the Carnival parade thrown by the rich, white folks of Rex. Its King is usually a member, but in 1949 they honored the great Louis Armstrong:
Satchmo was thrilled to be honored in his hometown but continued to live in Queens. He was unwilling to be treated as a second-class citizen, which meant living in New Orleans was out of the question. Besides, he spent most of the year on the road but New York was where he hung his hat or is that horn? Louis received another signal honor that year. He was on the cover of Time Magazine: Zulu has a brand spanking new signature float this year that honors their 1949 King. It will make its debut on Mardi Gras Day.
The Autograph is on a separate piece of paperand is artfully displayed next to the picture of Satchmo
