Quite a story ...

A little Black Boy growing up in a Jewish home...Interesting story

A Grandson of slaves, a boy was born in a poor neighborhood of New
Orleans known as the "Back of Town. His father abandoned the family
when the child was an infant, His mother became a prostitute and the
boy and his sister had to live with their grandmother.

Early in life he proved to be gifted for music and, with three other
kids, he sang in the streets of New Orleans.

His first gains were the coins that were thrown to them.

A Jewish family, Karnofsky, who had immigrated from Lithuania to the
USA had pity for the 7-year-old boy and brought him into their home.
They initially gave him 'work' in the house, to feed this hungry
child. There he remained and slept in this Jewish family's home where,
for the first time in his life he was treated with kindness and
tenderness.

When he went to bed, Mrs. Karnovsky sang him a Russian Lullaby that he
would sing with her.

Later, he learned to sing and play several Russian and Jewish songs.

Over time, this boy became the adopted son of this family.

The Karnofskys gave him money to buy his first musical instrument, as
was the custom in the


Jewish families. They sincerely admired his musical talent.

Later, when he became a professional musician and composer, he used
these Jewish melodies in compositions, such as St. James Infirmary and
Go Down Moses.

The little black boy grew up and wrote a book about this Jewish family
who had adopted him in 1907.

In memory of this family and until the end of his life, he wore a star
of David and said that in this family he had learned "how to live real
life and determination."

You might recognize his name. This little boy was called Louis
"Satchmo" Armstrong.

Louis Armstrong proudly spoke fluent Yiddish!

And I bet you did not know any of this.........

And "Satchmo" is Yiddish for "Big Cheeks"!!

Great story Bill. But "Satchmo" is short for satchel mouth.
