We Shall Overcome

Here’s my old “buddy” Joan Baez, singing We Shall Overcome, partly in Persian, in support of the Iranians campaigning for more rights. Hat tip to Juan Cole. (Back in 1962 I went to the Brookline Public Library in Brookline, Mass., with a friend and watched the young Joan Baez do some songs.)

    Joan Baez is a truly wonderful person… one of the few who didn’t betray her thoughts and political ideas. I really admire her for her integrity.

    Thanks, Zhu. Yes, she’s been consistent over the years. I’ve always liked her too.
