Two weeks from tomorrow, Zoe will be in Charleston with Joan Baez at the #Emanuel9RallyforUNITY to End Gun Violence & Acquire Racial Reconciliation. I love the poster:
I’ll also just note this review in the local student newspaper:
Before performing Woody Guthrie’s protest song ‘Deportee’, Baez provides context, describing the press coverage of the 1948 Los Gatos DC-3 crash in which only the plane’s staff, and not the twenty-eight Mexican citizens on board were named (the Mexicans referred to merely as ‘deportees’). She pays tribute to them, and to all refugees, and pays tribute too to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing, before playing a harrowingly beautiful rendition of Zoe Mulford’s (who attended the gig) song, ‘The President Sang Amazing Grace’, written in response to President Obama’s eulogy at the Charleston shooting service.
Hey student journalist! Zoe lives in Manchester and her main groupie works at the University!
