|

Florida A&M University is lifting the suspension of its famous Marching 100 band following a fatal hazing incident in 2011.

The band known for its marching appearances at presidential inaugurations and Super Bowls had been suspended since death of drum major Robert Champion.

The hazing scandal led to the retirement of band director Julian White and contributed to the resignation of president James Ammons.
