This home movie captures scenes from two performances made by African-American sororities and fraternities at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. In the first segment, sorority sisters perform a song and step routine for the crowd. In the second segment, fraternity brothers show off their step dancing moves. The performers in the second group are from the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, the first black, intercollegiate Greek fraternity in the nation.
