Joan Baez portrait as a black woman by Palo Alto High school diversity activists VS Pinoy boxer who took Mexican name

Francisco Guilledo was world champion boxer, but died young and fought using a pseudonym based on the Mexican anti-hero, Pancho Villa.

I saw the Joan Baez portrait, a detail of a larger work, at the Paly 100th year reception, in the lobby of new performing arts center.

I thought of this apropos of Sun Kil Moon, Mark Kozelek.
