“Dr. Mangum's leadership ensured the transfer of nearly 400 acres from the United States Department of Agriculture to FAMU- the largest transfer ever to an HBCU,” the petition says.
The petition, which asks the FAMU Board of Trustees to grant Mangum a contract extension, is incorrect about the amount of federal land that was transferred to the university. It was 3,800 acres, not 400 acres.
“Rattlers4FAMU Real Rattlers” also ignored the fact that the transfer agreement was signed before Mangum even came to FAMU.
