from THE EDITOR Dwight Floyd: Summation of Life & Leadership of FAMU's Past Presidents, Series Part 7

“I will aim for 100 percent cooperation … to see that FAMU remains
autonomous and viable. We are the only institution in Florida that gives
an opportunity to blacks to move ahead in leadership. Everywhere else,
they get lost in the crowd. . . . Here they learn social competence,
they learn to become leaders because they have to become leaders.”

"No single personality is bigger than FAMU. FAMU as an institution must
come first. FAMU must never die. It must live forever as an autonomous

Reverend Moses General Miles
