Unanimity of Thought & Action

It was an honor to present Washington, D.C.-based Step Afrika! in UMS’s 2023/24 season. Founded in 1994 by C. Brian Williams, Step Afrika! is the first professional company dedicated to stepping, a percussive, highly energetic art form first developed through elaborate and joyful song and dance rituals performed by Black fraternities and sororities.

Filmed at U-M’s campus during our Step Afrika! residency, this video gathers members from U-M’s Black fraternities and sororities to bring awareness to the founding, history, and legacy of the National Pan-Hellenic Council and its stated purpose and mission: “Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek-letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.”

All nine member organizations — The Divine Nine — are represented in the University of Michigan chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
