We sometimes forget just what a blazing star of sheer talent she was when she first "arrived" roughly half a century ago. She got a little self-righteous over the years with her political voice (not a mortal sin), but in the early 1960's her absolutely crystalline singing voice was a delight for the senses. Awfully pretty, too.

And she's so cool Martin Luther King Jr. visited her when SHE was in jail.

As a kid at Palo Alto high she refused to participate in the atom bomb drills because it was stupid.

If you haven't heard her collaboration with Steve Earle, Day After Tomorrow, you really should give it a listen.
