Frances Presley Rice will speak at the 2016 Bigwood Lecture at Legacy Hall.

Frances Presley Rice is the speaker for the 2016 Bigwood Lecture and will visit about her life achievements and her journey toward them. The Bigwood Lecture is free for all to attend and is meant as a way to recognize engaged leaders and citizen participation.

Here is a little more about Frances and her achievements:

  • Education – Juris Doctorate from University of California, Master of Bus Admin from Golden Gate University, Bachelor of Science from Drury College in MO.
  • Military Career – going from a Private in the Women’s Army Corps in 1964 to retiring as a lawyer and Lieutenant Colonel in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps twenty years later in 1984. Awarded Legion of Merit for her years of service.
  • African-American – Accorded the distinction of being one of America’s top 100 Black Business and Professional Women by the editorial board of Dollars and Sense magazine.
  • Film – Screenwriter, Director and Executive Producer with Block Starz Music Television LLC. The studio is best known for its documentary film, Oscar Micheaux: The Czar of Black Hollywood, that was nominated for a Black Reel Award as the Outstanding Independent Documentary by the Foundation for the Advancement of African-Americans in Film.
  • Political Activism – Frances Rice’s great-great-grandparents were slaves.  She spent her formative years in poverty in the segregated South during the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. She suffered personally from discrimination in the Democrat-controlled South and while in High School participated in civil rights protests. Frances became politically active in 1982 and served as a member of President Ronald Reagan’s Private Sector Initiatives Task Force.  She worked as a volunteer in the campaigns of Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush, as well as Florida Governors Jeb Bush and Rick Scott.
