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.
