Belva is an inspirational icon for women around
the world. Her quiet manner of speaking, even
about earth shaking issues subdues the noise that comes
with conflicts; be it personal, political,
gender or race. Ray T. moderated and Vicki added
to the delights of the evening's talk.
Quotes & Highlights
Belva Davis has earned dozens of awards for her journalism, including seven local Emmys and three honorary doctorate degrees.
Raised in a dysfunctional family in Louisiana and the Bay Area, Davis rose through the black radio industry, became the first black female reporter west of the Mississippi with her hiring at KPIX, and eventually anchored KQED’s “Evening Edition,” the station’s nightly news show. Davis will discuss her extraordinary journey, personal and professional.
