Description: Maynard was the only black woman covering news in NYC in '68 Nancy Maynard got her first sense of the power of the press when she was a teen. Her former grammar school, PS 46, had burned down. She read about it in the local paper and became so outraged at the negative and inaccurate description of her neighborhood that she decided right there she needed to fix it. Over the course of her career as a journalist, which spans nearly four decades, Maynard influenced the make-up of newsrooms across the country as both a reporter and mentor to younger reporters trying her best to improve the institution for people of color.
