Ms. Rice joins the ranks of past honorees including former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton; Congressmen James E. Clyburn (D-SC), Charles B. Rangel (D-NY), and John Lewis (D-GA); Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed; Muhammed Ali, lawyer and civil rights leader Vernon E. Jordan, Sr.; the late civil rights activist Dorothy I.
