The Fall 2019 Issue of A&M Magazine is online and available for your reading pleasure.
The cover story of the culture issue is a feature of Florida A&M University (FAMU) alumni Darryl Tookes, who has returned to his alma mater as director of Music Industry Studies. The Tallahassee born singer and songwriter is preparing the next generation of stars and managers to impact the entertainment industry.
Other faculty being showcased in the issue include national award-winning Jennifer Taylor, Ph.D., coordinator of the FAMU Statewide Small Farm Program and an accomplished farmer in her own right.
Ibram X. Kendi , FAMU 2004, is provoking debate and opening minds with his latest work, “How to be an AntiRacist” (OneWorld). Kendi says: “The only way we can undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it – and, then, dismantle it.”
Queer Eye star Karamo Brown also graces the pages of A&M Magazine providing answers to questions that have long puzzled his many fans.
The culture issue also features a Q&A with Shaia Simmons, the first lady of Rattler football, retired NFL player Henry “Killer” Lawrence, who has gone from the gridiron to the stage, and a memorial to fallen Rattler Dr. LaSalle Leffall, a legendary surgeon and educator.
