He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

1982 - When he was 64 years old, on June 30th, time ran out on the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). The Amendment had only received 35 of the necessary 38 state ratifications.

1985 - At the age of 67 years old, Joe was alive when on March 7th, the song "We Are the World" was released as a charity effort to alleviate the African famine.
