Joan Baez

Last summer, I discovered Joan Baez. She was friends with Dr. King and she marched with him and she helped him protect the African American school children on their way to school in Grenada, Mississippi. When she was 17, she refused to leave her seat when there was an atomic bomb drill at her school. Joan knew that it was just government propoganda and the drills would never keep them safe. She inspires me because she believes in nonviolence and civil disobedience and she is the first singer that I can truly look up to because she refused drugs. :)
