Description
In 1955, as the Soviet Union's pervasive propaganda about the U.S. and American racism spread globally, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. convinced President Eisenhower that jazz was the best way to intervene in the Cold War cultural conflict. For the next decade, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Dave Brubeck traveled the globe to perform as cultural ambassadors.
Description
Through archival footage, photos, and radio clips, examines how American jazz musicians traveled the world as cultural ambassadors promoting the image of tolerant America while simultaneously fighting racism and segregation in the United States.
