World Renowned Singer Patti Smith Dedicates Song "Peaceable Kingdom" To Victims of Oakland Fire And Fallen Activists

The legendary singer, poet and author Patti Smith performed two songs Monday night at Riverside Church celebrating Democracy Now’s 20th anniversary. She opened with "Peaceable Kingdom," a song she wrote for Rachel Corrie, the American activist killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza in 2003. Smith dedicated the song to the young artists who died in Friday’s fire in Oakland, as well as young journalists and activists who have lost their lives.
