Who was this black, female jazz trumpeter

At 2:13 in this Timeline video posted to Facebook, there's some stock footage of a black woman playing trumpet in a jazz band. Does anyone know who she is? The credit says "Prelinger Archives" but I don't get anything back from reverse images searches. I don't have a sound ID app handy, but maybe that would turn up the recording. I'm curious, because I've never heard of any female jazz trumpeters from that era. Possibly Valaida Snow?
