Wanda Lloyd chronicles her life journey, from growing up in segregated Savannah, to editing roles at seven daily newspapers, and finally back to Savannah to make a difference in her childhood community. Her path was shaped by the segregated social, community and educational systems, and also by a strong religious and cultural foundation. Along the way, she became an advocate and an example for how diversity helped newsrooms become reflections of accuracy for their audiences. In conversation with Lloyd will be Rexanna Keller. Keller Lester is a former executive editor and columnist for The Savannah Morning News. She worked as an editor at The Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville and managing editor for Morris News Service in Atlanta. She has also been a professor for international students at the SCAD Language Studio. Rexanna authors a blog for the Beehive Foundation and she is working on a biography of Mills B. Lane, IV. A native of Oklahoma, she has lived in Germany and Hong Kong and she has called Savannah home for 30 years.
