Living Legend

Carmen Milagro is a San Francisco-based singer and songwriter. She also hosts a radio show called "Women Who REALLY Rock!" and is a founder and director of a non-profit organization, Peanut Butter & JAMMusic Sessions for Kids, which teaches music to children.

Living Legend is Milagro's tribute to two incredible civil right activists who inspired her: Dolores Huerta and Coretta Scott King. Huerta was a Chicano woman and a relentless advocate for farm workers' rights. She worked side-by-side with Cesar Chávez and organized, boycotted, protested and lobbied the government and put her life on the line many times as one of the principal--although unsung--leaders of the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in the United States. King led the African-American Civil Rights Movement along with her husband Martin Luther King Jr. She took part in the Montgomery Bus Boycott and is responsible in part for the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. She was an activist who advocated passionately not only for African American rights but for women's and LGBT rights as well.

dolores, dolores de me alma
dolores dolores que me inspiran
sacrificios, beneficios y justicia
mujer de el pueblo y de dios
mujer de el pueblo y de mi dios

living legend, legend gone save your children
living legend, legend gone save your soul
living legend, legend gone your fight has just begun...
hand him all your fears women of color, women of age
hand him all your fears, dry up all your tears
shake your fists up in a rage!

coretta, coretta you inspire me
coretta, coretta you remind me
segregations, demonstrations and much justice
woman of substance (action) fueled his dream
woman of substance (action) fueled his mighty dream...

hand him all your fears, dry up all your tears (3x)
hand him all your fears women of color, women of age
hand him all your fears, dry up all your tears
