Duke Ellington becomes first African-American on U.S. coin

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Jazz legend Duke Ellington is the first African-American to appear on an American coin, the U.S. Mint says in introducing the latest in its line of state-themed quarters.

The District of Columbia coin honoring Duke Ellington will be  introduced Tuesday at the Smithsonian.

The District of Columbia coin honoring Duke Ellington will be introduced Tuesday at the Smithsonian.

The District of Columbia commemorative quarter showing Ellington playing the piano will be introduced by U.S. Mint Director Ed Moy at a news conference Tuesday at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Ellington won the honor by a vote of D.C. residents, beating out abolitionist Frederick Douglass and astronomer Benjamin Banneker.

Also on the coin is the phrase "justice for all." The mint rejected the first inscription choice of D.C. voters, which was "taxation without representation," in protest of the District's lack of voting representation in Congress.

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington received 13 Grammy Awards and was a pioneer in jazz, according to his official Web site.

Ellington was born in the District and composed more than 3,000 songs, including the notable "It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing," a song that helped usher in the swing era of jazz.

Ellington performed with other famous artists, including John Coltrane, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, and he traveled around the world with his orchestras.

He died in 1974 at age 75

No, but they do have the "Westward Wagons Go the Latter-Day Saints" exhibition with the life-sized simulacrum of Brigham Young shouting "This is the place!!".  It's better than "An Evening With Mr. Lincoln".
 
Interesting.  All I'd known about the Latter-Day Saints area in Disneyland was the Mountain Meadows Shooting Gallery.   Hit an immigrant passing through and you get one of their children as a prize.

If you could go into a foreign community - with a language different to your own - you would learn something more about your own reality.
You are caught in a Disneyland view - or do you say 'US America' instead of 'America'?
