"Bonnie Raitt to Receive Humanitarian Award"
Raitt, 55, has campaigned to stop war in Central America, participated in the Sun City anti-apartheid project and performed at the 1980 No Nukes concerts at Madison Square Garden. She's also worked for environmental protection as well as rights for women and American Indians.

In 1988, she co-founded the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, which works to improve royalties and financial conditions for R&B pioneers.
