Preview one minute trailer - Comment on film

This one hour film introduces viewers to the step show, an exciting dance style popular today among black fraternities and sororities. In addition to many rousing, crowd-pleasing performances, the program examines the cultural roots of steppin' in African dancing, military marching and hip-hop music, and discusses its contemporary social significance on college campuses. Made by Jeral Harkness in 1992 and taped at the University of Indiana.

.fascinating...a good purchase for high schools and colleges as well as public libraries, and a must for those with African American history collection
