KUHT 8 brings Condoleezza Rice to Houston

Dr. Condoleezza Rice will be coming to Houston's Rice University, Tuesday, November 8 at 7pm as a part of KUHT 8's HoustonPBS Elevate Lecture Series:

The HoustonPBS Elevate Lecture Series, in partnership with the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University, welcomes Dr. Condoleezza Rice to Houston on Tuesday, November 8 at 7 p.m. at Rice University.

Dr. Rice served as the sixty-sixth U.S. Secretary of State and was the first black woman to hold that office. Prior to that, she was the first woman to serve as National Security Advisor. She is a professor at Stanford University, and co-founder of the Rice Hadley Group, a consulting firm which advises U.S. businesses on investing in emerging markets. Rice is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family. Her new book, No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington, will be published by Crown on November 1.

In a moderated discussion, hosted by HoustonPBS Emmy award-winning producer Ernie Manouse, Rice will offer a behind the scenes glimpse of diplomatic negotiations during her years in Washington serving as the country’s leading diplomat.

“We’re honored to be partnering with Rice University to provide Houstonians with an opportunity to hear first hand from someone who has had a front row seat during many of our country’s recent pivotal moments,” says Manouse. “We anticipate a lively discussion between Dr. Rice and the audience.”

Tickets for the HoustonPBS Elevate Lecture Series featuring Condoleezza Rice are $25 for general admission and $75 for a special reception with Dr. Rice and admission to the lecture. Visit or call (713) 743-8459 to purchase tickets.

The HoustonPBS Elevate Lecture Series is presented by the John P. McGovern Foundation.
