Congratulations to singer, songwriter, musician, and activist Joan Baez for her Kennedy Center Honor.

“The Kennedy Center Honors serves as a moment to celebrate the remarkable artists who have spent their lives elevating the cultural history of our nation and world,” Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein said in a press release. “Folk icon Joan Baez breathed new life into the genre and powered rock music’s turn toward social and political consciousness.”

Baez is one of a handful who were photographed for Look magazine for an article on people under 30. See who else was photographed.
