After a 19-month suspension, the marching band at Florida A&M University will perform again, the university's interim president Larry Robinson said Thursday. The November 2011 death of drum major Robert Champion, who was brutally hazed in a post-football game ritual, led to the university putting the famed Marching 100 on hiatus and attempting to reform a well-established hazing culture. Robinson said that after taking measures including revising Florida A&M's anti-hazing policies and hiring a staff member to monitor and prevent the practice, the “right conditions” were in place to bring back the band, though he did not say when it will start performing again.
