DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Bethune-Cookman University alumni are demanding more transparency from the board of trustees’ chair.
The members of the Black Rose Project marched outside the school on Friday, and chanted and held up signs.
They said they want the chair to be more open with the alumni and students about what’s going on at the school, or step down.
“We are very very concerned about this,” said Jacqueline Schorter, chairperson of the Black Rose Project. “We (are) concerned about the direction he has taken the university. We are not going to stand for it. We are not going away.”
The university released a statement, in part calling the accusations by the Black Rose Project false.
It said the board has been successful in protecting the university’s accreditation and keeping the school open.
