H.G. Fields Presents: Black History Month; Throwback Thursday II

Satchmo, better known as Louis Armstrong was one of those gage (cannabis) smoking, ethnic jazz types that America’s sweetheart and first drug czar, Harry J. Anslinger warned about – I wrote up a piece on Louis two years ago, here.

Throwback May 2014

This one I started for the aforementioned post. Which I literally returned to in the wee hours of this Thursday morning and completed several hours later.

Though the following isn’t a throwback it still fits my Black History Month narrative, and thus the following illustration is inspired by the words of the man himself..

Satchmo – What A Wonderful World

“It makes you feel good, man,” Armstrong said. “[it] makes you forget all the bad things that happen to a Negro. It makes you feel wanted, and when you’re with another tea smoker, it makes you feel a special kinship.”

I can definitely say that I share the same sentiment.

Irie folks,

Keep Blazing

And

Stay Amazing!
