Spelman’s AKAs Slay In Spelhouse Homecoming Step Show

The Spelman and Morehouse College (Spelhouse) Homecoming Step Show is one of the most electrifying productions of the entire AUC school year.

Each year to conclude the Homecoming week different fraternities and sororities come together to put on an amazing show. This year was no different. Each organization that took the stage during the Spelhouse Homecoming Step Show came with their absolute best. Although each performance was equipped with captivating skits, impressive dance moves, and camaraderie, there was one Greek organization that stood out from the bunch.

The ladies of the “Sweet” Mu Pi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. took home the gold trophy as the winners of the 2016 Spelhouse Homecoming Step Show. The performance encompassed a Black Lives Matter theme that kept the crowd on the edge of their seats. During the production, each performer was dancing her heart out as the ladies didn’t miss a single beat.

“When I heard the host call Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. as the first place winners of the 2016 SpelHouse Step Show the feeling was surreal,” Spelman student Josee Muldrew told HBCU Buzz after their performance. “I was beyond proud, and not simply because we had won, but because I knew that winning that trophy had meant our message was received.”

Muldrew added, “The inspiration for this show came from reflecting on all of the plight [that] our race has had to endure throughout history. We knew that being a part of this show was giving us a platform to use our talent for something bigger than ourselves.”

The ladies of Mu Pi did just that as their exhilarating, unapologetically black showcase earned them the trophy.
