Summary
Newspaper executive and publisher Mollie Finch-Belt was born on August 7, 1943 in Dallas, Texas. Finch-Belt's mother, Mildred, was a mathematics instructor; her father, Fred J. Finch, Jr., founded the Dallas Examiner in 1986. After publishing only one issue, Finch-Belt's mother and father were murdered in their home. In 1961, Finch-Belt graduated from Lincoln High School in Dallas, Texas. After briefly attending Spelman College, she enrolled at the University of Denver, where she graduated in 1965 with her B.A. degree in sociology and psychology. In 1997, Finch-Belt and her husband, attorney James C. Belt, Jr., Finch-Belt, invested personal resources to revitalize the Dallas Examiner. From the time she assumed publishing responsibilities of the Dallas Examiner, Finch-Belt continued her father's dream of providing the Dallas African American community with its own news service. In 2004, it received twelve awards from the regional chapter of National Association of Black Journalists, including Best Newspaper.
