Black History Month Step Show set for Feb. 25 at Troy University

Posted: Tuesday, 22 February 2011

TROY—Troy University’s Phi Beta Sigma fraternity will host its 8th annual Black History Month Step Show at 7 p.m., Feb. 25 in Claudia Crosby Theater on the Troy Campus.

The Black History Month Step Show was created to encourage unity among Greek organizations on the Troy Campus, according to LaCheston Moore, head coordinator and previous Phi Beta Sigma president.

“During the Civil Rights Movement, it wasn’t all black people fighting for equality; white people were involved in certain movements as well,” Moore said. “So, what we wanted to do was bring all Greek organizations together to celebrate these efforts on our campus.”

The National Panhellenic Council (NPHC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), and Panhellenic Council (PHC) will be competing for cash prizes. Awards of $1,200 will be presented to the best female and male organization in the competition.

Greek organizations from TROY and Alabama State University will take part in the competition.

TROY’s Phi Beta Sigma, the Iota Eta Sigma’s Rhoer Club, and the Sigma Beta Club will open the show by presenting stepping exhibitions.

Tickets for the event are on sell for $10 in the Trojan Center Food Court until Feb. 23. Tickets will be $15 at the door. This event is open to the public.
