Freaknik was an Atlanta staple. The event began in 1983 as a community picnic for HCBU students who could not afford to return home for spring break.
However, it exploded in the 1990s and earned a reputation as being one of the wildest spring break events in America. It was eventually shut down in 1999 following the intervention of police and local officials.
Hulu has been working on a documentary about the event, specifically about its 1994 iteration, for some time.
Lending credence to the film was the involvement of Luke “Uncle Luke” Campbell, who was a staple of the 90s Freaknik festivities.
The film was set to be released next year to mark the 30th anniversary of ’94 Freaknik.
