Singer-songwriter Joan Baez performs one of her classic folk ballads at the March for Peace Rally held in Washington, D.C. in 1965. Along with Bob Dylan and the folk trio Peter, Paul, and Mary, Joan Baez was a cultural icon of the 1960’s peace and civil rights movements. This Joyce image captures Baez at the height of her musical career and in full command of the large audience that had marched on Washington to protest America’s involvement in the Vietnam War.
