About the Book

Hazing has been defined in a number of ways, but the resulting consequences are the same - ridicule, humiliation, embarrassment and abuse. Despite contrary beliefs, hazing impacts all ages and segments of society. Society must therefore be engaged in educational strategies to understand the causes and effects of hazing and research-based strategies for prevention that over time will eliminate the negative consequences. The book by Dr. Ronald Holmes provides a framework for K-20 educators and others to have an in depth look at hazing and begin to develop anti-hazing strategies to overcome the negative consequences in our communities, schools, institutions and society. It is a must read for those interested in using knowledge and collaborative strategies to understand and prevent hazing. Dr. George E. Cooper, former president of South Carolina State University The time is now for all of us to become actively involved to tackle the problem and pain of violence on Black college campuses, Black community and other communities. I hope that this book will inspire and challenge us to do our level best to rid, purge and root out hazing from our culture. Make no mistake about hazing, it didn’t begin with Robert Champion, but prayerfully, it must end with the death of our drum major and other beloved children throughout the country. Let’s become a champion in this fight! Reverend Dr. R. B. Holmes Jr., pastor of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church Founder/Chair, National Anti-Hazing/Anti-Violence Task Force
