Florida A&M’s Department of Athletics launched an eight-week, web series this month on the history of the university’s best and most legendary athletes. FAMU DOA is calling the project “The Mystique.”
Featuring interviews, video footage, photos and first-person accounts, a new episode of “The Mystique” will be released every Monday throughout June and July, according to FAMU.
Director of Athletics Derek Horne felt it was mandatory that the department rekindles the FAMU spirit by celebrating those who have made us proud.
“I think the Mystique series will give us the opportunity to expose our rich tradition to the younger generation to see why we are so proud of FAMU athletics,” he said.
The schedule for the remaining episodes is as follows:
