Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the first African-American woman to hold this title, will provide a rare glimpse at the life experiences that have shaped her world outlook and will give her views on current issues.  It is Rice’s first public appearance since the publication of her latest book, Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family.
 
The Stanford University political science professor and Hoover Institution senior fellow will recount her childhood memories growing up in the 1950s in segregated Alabama surrounded by racism, and in the 1960s when she saw friends lose their lives to the violence and bloodshed of the era.
 
Rice will also discuss the people and experiences that have guided her on her path to occupying one of the nation’s highest offices.  When she became the 66th Secretary of State in 2004, Rice pioneered a policy called “Transformational Diplomacy” which sought to build democracy, particularly in the Middle East.
 
In 2001, George W. Bush appointed Rice the first female National Security Adviser.  In 1997, she served on the Federal Advisory Committee on Gender-Integrated Training in the Military.  In 1989, she became director of Soviet and East European affairs with the National Security Council and special assistant to George Bush during the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
 
In 1993, she was the first African American woman to become a Stanford provost, a post she held to 1999.  Rice earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Denver, a master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame; and Ph.D. from the University of Denver.
