Music producer Jermaine Dupri will be honored by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California next week.
The ACLU will honor Dupri, along with fellow honoree Earvin Magic Johnson, with the Bill of Right Award.
Dupri, who is on the board of directors for The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network, has also worked to help repeal Rockefeller Drug Laws and has also participated in a variety of voter registration programs.
Dupri and Johnson are also receiving the award for their philanthropic and community oriented contributions.
Dupri and Johnson join a number of actors and artists who have been recognized by The ACLU, including Rosa Parks, Barbara Streisand, Martin Scorsese, Antonio L.A. Reid and others.
The ACLU will honor Jermaine Dupri and Magic Johnson on December 8, 2008 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.
