Your ticket purchase at the Host Committee Level* will help fund a journalism scholarship in Belva's name and a project to digitize and house Belva's papers in San Francisco State University.

Belva Davis has been a fixture in Bay Area journalism for more than five decades. Since becoming the first black female television journalist in the West in 1964, she has covered events of local, national, and international scope; interviewed US Presidents and other world leaders; and, for the past 19 years, served as the host of KQED’s must-watch public affairs program “This Week in Northern California.” Belva announced her retirement from broadcasting last year, and signed off the air on November 9. Join newsmakers, colleagues and friends in celebrating Belva’s historic career with a reception and a program of interviews, tributes, and surprises presided over by former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown.
