Never In My Wildest Dreams: A Black Woman’s Life in Journalism
Belva Davis, Award-Winning Journalist
Host: David Inge
We talk to television news pioneer Belva Davis. She was the first black woman to work in television news on the West Coast. She has talked with some of the most notable figures of the 20th century and reported some of the biggest stories, including the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, the birth of the Black Panthers and the beginning of the AIDS epidemic. On a recent visit to the campus, she stopped by our studios to talk about how she got her start in broadcasting and to share stories drawn from her 40-year career. Recorded on April 17, 2012.
This is a repeat broadcast from Thursday, May 10, 2012, 11 am
