Monday’s memorial service in Oakland for Dori J. Maynard, the president of the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education who died at 56 on Tuesday after battling lung cancer, will be livestreamed, the institute announced Sunday night.

The Bay Area News Group, which includes the Oakland Tribune among its 11 daily newspapers, 27 weeklies and other properties, plans to tweet the service.

“The #hashtag will be #dorimaynard,” Martin G. Reynolds, senior editor for community engagement at the Bay Area News Group and a Maynard Institute board member, told Journal-isms by email on Friday.

Maynard’s father, Robert C. Maynard, became the first African American publisher of a mainstream U.S. newspaper when he bought the Tribune in 1983. He and his wife, Nancy Hicks Maynard, sold the paper in 1992.
