VIBE: Bay Area personality and journalist Belva Davis was profiled on CNN recently, and rightfully so. Her new book, Never in My Wildest Dreams: A Black Woman’s Life in Journalism must be a winner.The CNN segment below gives you a sense of the breadth and depth of her inspiring career.
For more than four decades I reported on the lives of the famous and infamous. Many shared dreams and goals that seemed impossible. My memoir, Never in My Wildest Dreams: A Black Woman’s Life in Journalism tells their stories and recounts my own challenges. What seemed impossible turned into reality as I became the first black woman television news reporter in the West, a position that has allowed me to report on some of the most explosive and heart wrenching stories of the last half century. – Belva Davis
