Romona Robinson

Local legend Romona Robinson will discuss her Emmy Award-winning career in broadcasting and read from her new book, A Dirt Road To Somewhere.     Robinson was the first African-American woman to anchor a newscast in Cleveland in 1987.  She has been a fixture of the city’s broadcast news scene ever since.

Raised in a tiny, poverty-stricken town in rural Missouri,  Romona, along with her ten siblings, knows what it means to struggle. Under the tutelage of her hardworking, protective, and God-fearing mother,    Romona develops an affinity for the Bible and Walter Cronkite. She also believes her home on a dead-end dirt road would lead her to somewhere.

This program is free, however seating is limited.  You must have a ticket to get into the  program.  Tickets are available at the Library.
