I consider myself to be a news head and journalism junkie, but I must admit that I was not familiar with the work of Belva Davis. Growing up in the Midwest, I was not privy to the trails she blazed for over five decades in broadcast journalism in the San Francisco Bay area. One can only imagine the experiences she must have gone through reporting during times of civil and social unrest.
In her book “Never in My Wildest Dreams: A Black Woman’s Life in Journalism,” she writes about her triumphs, adventures and challenges as she worked to become the first African American woman to anchor the news on the West Coast.
I truly look forward to reading more about the life of this news pioneer.
