Following administrative action, Florida A&M students publish news online

Maynard Institute

Student journalists at Florida A&M University have begun publishing online after a school official ordered the school paper not to publish for a few weeks, Richard Prince reports. "We're covering all the news that we would normally be covering," Karl Etters, the school paper's editor, tells Prince.

The site is called Ink and Fangs. A photo at the top of the site shows the student journalists with their hands over their mouths.

"I am thrilled about the strong support of the student journalists from Famuan alums and Famu alums," j-school Dean Ann Kimbrough tells Prince.

Last August, students at the independent University of Georgia paper The Red & Black began publishing online after a dispute with the paper's board.
