X user @MobzWorld tagged Whitmore in a March 21 post, writing: “Mr. Cecil, is this you down at Freaknik?”

Whitmore got a good laugh out of the picture, and reposted it along with the caption: You got me!!! This is the OG Freaknik before the 90s for the record. @eugeneharrisIII & I are working on our podcast, we will talk about it!!!”

In a follow-up post, Whitmore said he has a lot more pictures from Freaknik and plans to share them all.

The former IT exec, who now works as a real estate consultant, attended Morehouse college, and just shared a picture from 1989 with his brother, David Whitmore, and David’s girlfriend at Freaknik.

Freaknik was a huge street party in Atlanta in the 1980s and ’90s.

The gathering dates back to 1982, when students from Spelman and Morris Brown colleges organized a small picnic for HBCU students to celebrate spring break. With each year, Freaknik soared in popularly and attracted thousands of students from other cities as well as local residents.

But the street party caused traffic problems, reports of shootings, drug use, and sexual assault. By the mid-90s business leaders and residents became fed up and pressured politicians to put an end to Freaknik.

According to Hulu, the new documentary “offers an intimate glimpse” at the street festival and its legacy.

The project comes from Mass Appeal in association with Swirl Films. Executive producers include Jermaine Dupri, Luke “Uncle Luke” Campbell, 21 Savage, Terry “TR” Ross, Melissa Cooper, Alex Avant and Tresa Sanders.

The film was released on March 21, and includes interviews with the event’s founders, former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Erick Sermon, Lil Jon, Rasheeda, CeeLo Green, Rico Wade, Kenny Burns and others.
