I’m celebrating Black History Month February 2012 by honoring living legends who gleam from leaders of our past and continue in their footstepsby making their mark on the world. Robin Roberts. Did you know that Robin Roberts will be inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the hall’s class of 2012 for her contributions to and impact on the game of women’s basketball through her broadcasting work? The GMA co-anchor also survived 6 and a half weeks of radiation treatment after being diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer as she courageously and publicly fought her battle. (I remember the first day she revealed her cute short hair cute and removed her wig on-air. I was so inspired)
From the devastation of Hurrican Katrina in her hometown Pass Christian, Mississippi to cover the AIDS epidemic in Africa, Robin Roberts has been around the globe. No stranger to primetime, Robin did the exclusive interview with Janet Jackson, the first interview after the death of Michael Jackson and Robin was also the first to interview President Obama after he was sworn is.
