Toyota has partnered with Atlanta Greek Picnic (AGP), now in its 18th year, celebrating the rich tradition and history of “Step Culture” that exists at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. AGP takes place over a five-day event hosted at Morris Brown College in Atlanta, GA from June 8-12, 2022. Founded in 2004, by Tiwa Works, AGP has historically attracted over 350,000 Divine 9 members from numerous states across the country with an estimated $25 million economic impact each year. AGP creates a community to celebrate “Step Culture” in the largest step competition in the Southeast.

The art and tradition of “Stepping” blends African folk traditions with popular culture and dates back to the early 1900s. In the percussive, highly-energetic art form, first developed through the song and dance rituals performed by African-Americans, stepping evokes the body into becoming an instrument using footsteps, claps and spoken word to produce complex poly-rhythms. Historical stepping is a form of communication and storytelling performed by fraternities and sororities that belong to the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
