IDA-Supported Doc of the Week

'Belva Davis Reporting' written in black font
Directed by
George Osterkamp

In this week's Doc of the Week, we tell the untold story of TV pioneer, Belva Davis, who broke color and gender barriers to become the first Black on-air newswoman west of the Mississippi.  More than a biopic, this is a story of the times as Belva covered the nation’s growing civil rights struggle and the often-tumultuous City of San Francisco.
