About the image
This portrait of Joan Baez standing on the steps of the Alabama State Capitol in 1965 originally appeared in the New York Times Magazine as a two-page spread. It was the first image Somerstein sold as a photojournalist.

Baez had joined Martin Luther King, Jr. on the march from Selma-to-Montgomery, Alabama, singing for the crowd as they camped the night before arriving at the state capitol. 

Release Notes:
This image was featured for the first time for collectors at our landmark exhibition: Rosa Sat, Martin Walked, & Barack Ran: From a Seat on a Bus to a Desk at The White House, in February, 2010.
