I think it's quite unfortunate that the only white New Orleans musician quoted in the episode is LaRocca, whose views as far as I can determined were not shared by most of his white contemporaries or even the other members of the band.
If race relations was to be a theme, they missed a fine opportunity with the only other white musician mentioned in episode 1, Papa Jack Laine, since lead racially integrated bands before 1900.
Another opportunity was missed with the quick pan of a photo of the Original New Orleans Jazz Band-- they mention the pianist who later became famous as a commedian, but not that a jazz band with multiracial personel was recording before 1920.
