Birmingham Sunday By Joan Baez; Remembering Our Girls


King leads a group of African-American children to their newly integrated school in Grenada, Mississippi, escorted by folk singer Joan Baez and two aides. Bettmann/CORBIS


Joan Baez has forever been one of my role models of a socially and politically engaged artist.  She has been front and center in campaigns for human rights. Here is a link to Joan singing Richard Farina’s song Birmingham Sunday;  a song in commemoration of the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, September 15, 1963

  1. This song has always felt powerful, but this version with images makes it more powerful that ever. I will share it!
