Additional Information on Susan Rice


* Rice has served as a board member of numerous organizations, including the National Democratic Institute, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, the Atlantic Council, the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, the Bureau of National Affairs, the Partnership for Public Service, and the Beauvoir National Cathedral Elementary School.

* Rice has been a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Aspen Strategy Group.

* On May 23, 2015, Rice posted two emotional tweets on the passing of Nigerian literary icon Chinua Achebe:

  • “[T]oday is a somber day in Nigeria, as Chinua Achebe was laid to rest in his native village.”
  • “A giant of African lit., he brought the Continent-and Nigeria, in particular-2 the world. His works left lasting impression on me

But in fact, Achebe had died two years earlier, in March 2013, at age 82. After other Twitter users pointed out Rice’s mistake, she removed her tweets.
