Belva Davis was the first African-American woman television journalist on the West Coast. We was interviewed by Judy Woodruff about her career in broadcast news and her new memoir, Never in My Wildest Dreams: A Black Woman’s Life in Journalism. In the interview she says,

This hunger for, one would call it ambition, to be successful in a media where I had not been expected to be,  had not been accepted for so long, and where expectations had been so low by so many people, I just couldn’t let them win, I couldn’t let them get the best of me.
