MAYNARD EATON-LEGENDARY JOURNALIST-FINAL WISHES

Donation protected
My name is Robin Williams Eaton--I am the wife of Maynard Eaton.

On March 15, two months ago, Maynard found out he had stage four lung cancer during his spring break from Hampton University, where he was an endowed professor of journalism. He tried his best to take chemotherapy but it destroyed his body.

His goal was to be able to return to Hampton in the fall to teach his students, who he held so dear throughout the last 30 years, even as a professor at Clark Atlanta University. Many of his students have gone on to have impactful careers in journalism. They truly represent his enduring legacy.

We are trying as a family to quickly pull together a celebration of life that will reflect the incredible indelible imprint he had on Black Press, the Civil Rights Movement and his students.

We are also faced with a lot of expenses from cancer treatments and medical bills.

Please help us reach our goal and take Maynard home right!
