Oakland, CA – Join former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the Friends of Faith in the fight against breast cancer.
We invite you to a rare evening with Dr. Rice in conversation with veteran KQED-TV journalist Belva Davis at the elegant Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco.
Dr. Rice will discuss her amazing journey from growing up in segregated Birmingham, Ala., to becoming the first African American female Secretary of State. Dr. Rice, who lost her own mother to breast cancer, will also share her own personal experiences of caring for a loved one battling this deadly disease.
Dr. Rice’s memoir about her tenure as a top advisor in the administration of President George W. Bush is scheduled for release in 2011. As part of a three-book deal, Dr. Rice will also write a memoir about her family life, along with a young adult version—both scheduled for release in 2012.
After eight years of government service, Dr. Rice returned to the Hoover Institution where she is the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy. She also is a professor of political science at Stanford University.
Friends of Faith, Inc. is a nonprofit organization founded by the late television news personality Faith Fancher of KTVU, whose valiant 7-year battle against breast cancer was an inspiration to countless women battling this deadly disease. The organization has a unique mission: to provide financial support and invaluable resources to underserved, uninsured, and at-risk women with breast cancer who have nowhere else to turn.
Since Faith’s death in 2003, her fellow Bay Area media personalities, along with many others in the community who are dedicated to her cause, have joined forces to continue the work that has been a Godsend for so many breast cancer survivors and their loved ones.
