The caption cites Baez' mother as "Joan Chandos Baez", which is incorrect.  Chandos is actually Joan Baez' middle name; Joan's mother was Joan Bridge (her maiden name) Baez.

One of my heroines. She's lived her life with integrity. I'd love to sit down and talk to her as I try to do the same and figure out what life means at 61.
