Profile: Belva Davis

If you could encapsulate a pioneer's life in just a few lines, one might describe KQED's Belva Davis as an African-American woman, who like many of her generation, she couldn't afford college.

Davis fell into and discovered a love for journalism, which led to her to become the first black television reporter on the West Coast and a 43 year career, with the past 16 as a mainstay of public television.

Of course, she has also been very active in her community.

But those are just a few words, while an interview in the Contra Costa Times goes a lot further towards giving the lady justice.
