A TALE OF 2 MUSIC CITIES
  • Director: Tiffani Elise Alexander
  • TRT: 14:45
  • Country: United States
  • Ratings: None
  • Synopsis: When the typical person thinks about Nashville, TN, they often epitomize the city with country music and culture. Nashville’s reputation for the biggest country stars, and honky-tonk vibes intrinsically, evokes an image of whiteness. However, when digging into the history of the city and the roots of musical lineage, the discovery of Black musical contribution can be surprising and eye-opening for many who are unaware of Nashville’s overlooked history.

LITTLE SATCHMO
  • Director: John Alexander
  • TRT: 61:00
  • Country: United States
  • Ratings: Adult Situations
Synopsis: To the world, Louis Armstrong is iconic — a symbol of musical genius, unparalleled success, and unassailable character. To Sharon, he was simply Dad. Armstrong’s wholesome, non-threatening image preserved his singular career as a black performer with unfettered access to a white man's world. Yet he was more than a caricature; he had desires, he had longings, and in private, he held tightly to the things he loved. Perhaps closest to his heart was a child whom he hid from the world: a daughter sworn to a life of secrecy until now.
