Today: Joan Baez lends voice to celebration

Singer will share recollections -- and perhaps a few songs

Famed folk singer Joan Baez, a longtime Woodside resident, lends her voice to a free local celebration for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Sunday, Jan. 17, in Palo Alto.

At the event, titled "Reflecting on the Dream," keynote speaker Baez will share reflections of her work with King, and perhaps a few songs. She's sure to have plenty of memories to share -- the longtime human-rights and civil-rights activist marched with Dr. King in the 1960s.

The event is planned from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church at 625 Hamilton Ave. in Palo Alto.

The volunteer Community Interfaith Choir will also perform, along with the school choir from Eastside College Preparatory in East Palo Alto. Alex Freeman, a youth speaker from Palo Alto High School, will give an address.

LaDoris Cordell, a former judge and Palo Alto City Council member, will serve as master of ceremonies. Refreshments will be served after the program.
