Miriam Makeba (1932-2008), the legendary singer and civil rights activist seen here in 1960, was born 81 years ago today in Johannesburg, South Africa. I was pleasantly surprised this morning to see that the doodle on Google’s homepage is in honor of her birthday. Photo: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty.
