Peter Gabriel and R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe will
be in New York Wednesday night (March 24) for the 11th annual Reebok
Human Rights Awards ceremony. The two musicians are on the event's board
of advisers along with former President Jimmy Carter. Four activists
will be honored: a former sex slave fighting to free other young women
in Ghana, a lawyer working against the death penalty in the United
States, an activist combating abuses against ethnic minorities in Burma
and a student leader fighting for democratic reforms in Kenya.
