Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. secretary of state and national security adviser to President George W. Bush and currently on faculty at Stanford University, will be on campus to deliver the 2013 Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture on Feb. 27 at 5 p.m.
The annual lecture honors the prominent Wall Street Journal reporter who was slain by terrorists in Pakistan in 2002. Pearl's father, Judea Pearl, computer science professor emeritus at UCLA, and his family established the Daniel Pearl Foundation to promote and continue Daniel's mission of fostering cross-cultural understanding throughout the world. Past presenters have included David Remnick of The New Yorker, Christopher Hitchens, CNN's Anderson Cooper, Thomas Friedman of The New York Times, Daniel Schorr of NPR, and CNN's Larry King. The foundation joins the UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations and the Yitzhak Rabin Hillel Center for Jewish Life at UCLA in sponsoring the lecture at Korn Convocation Hall, UCLA Anderson School of Management.
Admission is free, but advance registration is required. Find more information, and RSVP starting on Jan. 14, at this Burkle Center website.
