January 9, 1941 is the birthday of Joan Baez, a Mexican-American folk singer, songwriter, and activist for human rights, peace, and the environment. Her father, Albert Baez, was born in Puebla, Mexico. Baez’s wonderful accomplishments include founding the US branch of Amnesty International, performing publicly for over 50 years and releasing 30 albums. And yes, she really did date both Bob Dylan and Steve Jobs.
