And A Voice to Sing With: A Memoir Summary

And A Voice to Sing With: A Memoir by Baez

From the smoke-filled coffeehouse of the 1950s folk scene, where she first performed, to the racially tense South of the early sixties, bringing support to terrorized African-Americans with Martin Luther King, Jr. Joan has been involved with some of the most important political movements including the 2008 Presidential elections. Joan always took her social and political beliefs on-stage with her. The Woodstock performance where she sang to thousands in the middle of the night while six months pregnant became one of the stand-out and iconic performances of that period. In France, Italy, and Spain, her concerts made headlines for the political confrontations they sparked and in a church in Poland she sang to the brave workers of Solidarity. Whether she is recounting her stormy love affair with a young, undiscovered, and very ambitious Bob Dylan and how, years later, they fought bitterly over her affair with a woman. Or her marriage to David Harris and the pain of their break up, Joan displays both the openness and vulnerability that have touched us in her music and the passion and integrity that have marked her politics.

And A Voice to Sing With: A Memoir Reviews

[A] revealing autobiography...[H]er honesty and ideals are appealing, and in her life story one can see the passage of an artistic Everyman. -- Barbara Goldsmith, The New York Times Book Review
[A]n eyewitness' testimony of watching -- indeed, making -- cultural history. Eloquent and compassionate, Joan Baez has stunned millions with the purity of her voice; she has also acted unwaveringly on her non-party-line beliefs, and it's fitting that her memoir would offer its own share of provocation. -- Gail Caldwell, The Boston Globe
