FAMU hazing made headlines two years ago when FAMU band member Robert Champion died after what prosecutors call a savage beating during a hazing ritual. Sunday marked the FAMU band's return to the field.
Florida A&M's Marching 100 returns to the field Sunday for the first time since the 2011 death of the band's drum major during a hazing ritual. The tragedy sparked a broad crackdown on hazing on campuses, but the tradition is proving to be hard to eradicate.
The Florida A&M University Marching 100 band hired a new director but remains suspended. Administrators say they want to root out the culture of hazing that led to Robert Champion's death.
