Ex-Congressman is interim president of African Methodist university

Posted: Friday, June 28, 2002

WILBERFORCE, Ohio (AP) -- The Rev. Floyd Flake, a New York City pastor and former congressman, has been named interim president of Wilberforce University, affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Flake, a Wilberforce graduate, will keep his pastorate and serve for a year while the school searches for a permanent president.

Wilberforce, dating from 1856, is the oldest college founded by American blacks. It is named in honor of William Wilberforce (1759-1833), the devout evangelical who led the abolitionist cause in the British Parliament.
