BURBANK, Calif., March 23 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has agreed to appear on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," NBC announced Monday.

Rice is to stop by the late-night chat show Tuesday to "discuss her years of high-profile public service, and her new areas of focus following the presidency of George W. Bush," the network said in a news release.

Rice was the first female National Security Adviser and the first African-American woman to be appointed U.S. Secretary of State. She served in the Bush administration from Jan. 20, 2001 to Jan. 20, 2009.

Her work earned her inclusion in Time magazine's list of the "World's 100 Most Influential People" four times, NBC noted.
