Steppin' (1992)

About the 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.
