It’s Black History Month, a time to recognize African-American history and amazing contributions to society.
Condoleezza Rice was the first African-American woman to serve as US Secretary of State. She served for four years under President George W. Bush. Prior to that position, she was a professor of political science at Stanford University and later served as the university’s provost. Rice was also an advisor to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and was instrumental in devising ideas to combat threats against the US and troops overseas.
