Bono to Receive Civil Rights Award-The Scotsman

Irish rocker Bono is to receive a US National Civil Rights Museum Freedom Award.

The museum, built on the site in Memphis, Tennessee, where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, gives two Freedom Awards every year to those who have worked to advance civil rights.

U2 frontman Bono, who is receiving the museum's "international award" on October 18, had championed social justice with his music and actions, the museum said.
