A University of Mississippi step team vies to defend their title at the annual Black Greek Step Show. Embodying Black southern culture, brotherhood, creativity, and determination, the Eta Beta chapter of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. offers a deeper look into the lives of Black students at the university and how Black culture is lived out in a predominantly white environment.

I originally shot and edited this film for my MFA Showcase in Fall of 2019. Since then, I revisited it in the editing lab and now it’s on PBS Reel Show and has been selected for the 2022 PBS Short Film Festival that starts in July. 

I’m very proud of this work. And even more grateful to the men of the Eta Beta Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
