Dr. Condoleezza Rice inspires Birmingham during visit

Former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice made a visit to Birmingham Wednesday. She was the special guest at the 2012 Birmingham Business Alliance meeting. Dr. Rice explained to a group of more than 1,000 business leaders how a girl from Birmingham became one of the most successful and accomplished women in the history of the United States.{} Dr. Rice said love and support from family members and education are the keys with helping the children of Central Alabama succeed. "You can come from humble circumstances and do great things. In my family that meant high quality education. That education was armor against anything they might throw at you," Dr. Rice said.
