Hazel Dickens

(from an email I received)

Hazel Dickens

In case you don't know who Hazel Dickens was, she died yesterday (4/24/2011) and since you insist on being an adopted mountaineer, let me assist. She was a singer/activist who cronicled the ills of mining life. Black Lung was a made up illness accoring to the coal compaines when she wrote this song. No doctor would certify the deadly coal dust disease (Doctors were hired by the coal companies...).

Geat lady, with a passionate heart and a sweet, pure voice.
