The African American Biography Series of 2013 this week brings to you the lives of two United States Secretaries of State who happen to be African American and who also both served under President George W. Bush.  They are Mr. Colin Powell and Ms. Condoleezza Rice respectively.  Colin Luther Powell is a United States Statesman and a retired four-star general in the United States Army.  He was the 65th. United States Secretary of State from 2001-2005, serving under President George W. Bush.  He was the first African American appointed to that position.  Colin Powell was the first, and so far the only, African American to serve on the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  Ms. Condoleezza Rice was born in 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama.  She grew up surrounded by racism in the segregated South, but went on to become the first woman and first African American to serve as provost of Stanford University.  In 2001, Condoleezza Rice was appointed National Security Advisor by President George W. Bush, becoming the first Black woman to hold that post.  She went on to become the first Black Woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State.  She was the Nation's 66th. Secretary of State, serving from January 2005-2009.  This information comes to me from bio.true story.  Today is Thursday, May 30, 2013.  I'm your host, Laura Gall (mae510) and the name of my show is "You Talk Too Much".  This show airs on Thursday evenings 6:30-7pm eastern time.  My call in number is 1-714-242-5273.  The African American Biography Series of 2013 is your source for Black History on Internet Radio, Blogtalkradio.  Thank you for listening.
