On November 19, 2014 Grammy Award winner Joan Baez performed at a fundraiser for Ferguson, MO, in New York raising over $12,000. in the wake of the August 9th killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. She sang five songs, including “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around”. Sadly, five days later on November 24th the Grand Jury’s unjust decision of “no indictment” was announced for police officer Darren Wilson who killed unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown. It was approximately twelve noon on that hot summer day in August when Michael was shot to his death. The Ferguson police force stood by as his bloody lifeless body lie in the street for four and a half hours baking in the sun before he was taken away. A new year has begun; let us join in numbers with strength and determination. The unarmed lives lost shall not be in vain. The struggle for justice will not cease; protests must continue nationwide and beyond until all #BlackLivesMatter. Joan has proven since the 1950s she has been a visible force for civil and human rights, and today is no exception.

“You don’t get to choose how your are going to die or when. You can only decide how you’re going to live”. —Joan Baez

About Joan:

JOAN BAEZ (born January 9, 1941; Staten Island, NY) is an American folk singer, songwriter, musician, and activist of Mexican and Scottish descent. Joan’s career began in 1958 performing contemporary folk music which often included songs of protest and social justice. Her music has been recorded in her native languages English and Spanish, and in at least six other languages. Joan is well known for her civil rights work in the 1960s with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1963 she performed at the “March of Washington for Jobs and Freedom” leading the crowd in several verses of “We Shall Overcome” and “Oh Freedom”; and joined Bob Dylan when he performed “When The Ship Comes In”. In 1969 she performed three songs at the Woodstock Festival in New York. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s she was also highly visible and vocal about her disagreement with the Vietnam War, and has displayed a lifelong commitment to political and social activism in the fields of nonviolence, anti-war, civil and human rights, amnesty, and the environment. Today, in 2015, her music and activism are still going strong.

Retrospect:

“On Birmingham Sunday the blood ran like wine. And the choirs kept singing of Freedom. That cold autumn morning no eyes saw the sun…. On Birmingham Sunday a noise shook the ground. And people all over the earth turned around. For no one recalled a more cowardly sound. And the choirs kept singing of Freedom.” ―Joan Baez, 1963
