5. Joan Baez is one of my heroines.

Not only is she musically talented, but she does an awesome job of advocating for human rights!

Or "airplane." Or "White House." Or "helicopter." And on.

22. Me too. My middle finger has gotten a lot of exercise since trump started his campaign.

I flipped him off the first time when he announced on tv that he was running and called Mexicans rapists.

I've had the pleasure of meeting her and telling her how much she's inspired me since I first heard her. Interestingly, she doesn't just absorb a compliment without making you justify it. She wanted to know how she inspired me and what I did with it. Did I do good works? Did I inspire others and pass it on? She didn't sign my copy of her autobiography until I provided satisfactory answers. Joan...always the teacher!

That signed book is in my "burn bag" - the bag I'd grab if I had to escape a fire. It's a treasure to me.

I knew them in Paris when I was working au pair there in 1966.

18. Joan Baez has been on the winning side from the get-go

I first hear her name during my first bit of activism back in 1962. I was plugged into the boat aspect of Project Everyman because Art Piver was a close friend of our family and I was totally into what they were planning to do. Like a good teacher, he gave me full run to inspect and watch everything that was happening. Pretty heady times for a ten yer old.

A very young Joan Baez appears at 3:00

37. Hey, a million thanks for posting this.

Hadn't heard it, but it is spot-on, and so very "Joan". I've been a fan since she first hit the music scene back in the 60s, and have several of her albums, which I'll never get rid of. I became aware of her via the Time magazine article where she was described as "palpably nubile." Sent me straight to the dictionary, promptly bought Album #1, and have been hooked ever since. Saw her perform solo in Denver, later with Bob Dylan in Seattle. I frequently watch all her videos, plus her 75th birthday program on NPR, etc., and am hoping like crazy I'll have the chance to watch her perform in person before I depart the planet.

That voice and that incredible woman--boy, have we been blessed!

Cheers, Joan. Long may you wave!
