FAMU President Elmira Mangum has been named among the nation’s 100 most influential African Americans by EBONY Magazine.
“I am grateful to receive this prestigious recognition on behalf of the university. This honor represents FAMU’s long legacy of helping to foster transformative changes around the globe,” Mangum said.
Two FAMU alums will join Mangum on the “Power 100” list. Phillip Agnew will be honored as a “Community Crusader” for his work as the executive director of the Dream Defenders, Inc., and filmmaker and producer Will Packer will be honored as a “Cultural Influencer.”
