Professor James Peterson is the Director of Africana Studies and an Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University. He has a great deal to say about the recent hazing incidents at Florida A&M University. In recent weeks, a student by the name of Robert Champion, died during a hazing ritual for the FAMU Marching 100 band. Since that time, the band director has been fired, the band’s activities have been suspended and Florida authorities are now claiming that other acts of fraud have been committed on the FAMU campus.
The incident leads many black scholars and members of the community to wonder if the culture of hazing has gone too far. Additionally, we are left wondering if there are other ways to regulate the process to keep it from remaining underground.
