Bluegrass singer, songwriter, and musician Hazel Dickens (b. 1935) dies at the age of 75.  Musician, writer, and labor activist John Pietaro noted that “Dickens didn’t just sing the anthems of labor, she lived them and her place on many a picket line, staring down gunfire and goon squads, embedded her into the cause.”
