“The Awful Truth about Hazing”



Date: Tuesday, April 2,2013

Time: 5:30 pm

Place: University of Louisville, Ekstrom Library’s Chao Auditorium


CRI returns with it’s most shocking presentation to date!


If you think Florida A&M is the only school dealing with hazing injuries and deaths, you’re wrong! Did you know the University of Louisville has doled out multiple organizational suspensions for hazing over the  last decade and a half and even had a student nearly die in 1997?


Do you ever wonder what really happens during Greek letter pledge processes that sometimes lead to injuries or even death? Filmmaker and Alpha Phi Alpha member Jeff Obafemi Carr gives you a peek inside the secretive and dangerous world of Greek hazing with his groundbreaking film, “He Ain’t Heavy.” Come out, view this film, and engage in dialogue with Jeff Carr afterwards. I guarantee the experience will knock you off your feet!
