After a strong festival run and recent PBS broadcast of his latest film Soul Food Junkies, documentary filmmaker/activist Byron Hurt has announced that his next feature doc will tackle another hot-button issue in black culture - hazing, the often dangerous practice of initiating new members into Greek letter organizations and other groups.

Byron, a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity who admits to both hazing and being hazed, says he was inspired to make the film by the story of Robert Champion, the FAMU drum major who was killed in a hazing incident in 2011. 

Find the film announcement below. Byron has also launched an Indiegogo campaign to support the film, which you can find HERE
