Trivia

The Steppers are all members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, and part of the Southern California All-Star Step Team. This is the same fraternity as Actor Hill Harper, Hall of Fame Football Player Charles Haley, and Martin Luther King, Jr to name a few. Will and Alphonso even tried to learn some of their steps between takes. The addition of Stepping to the episode made it one of the more popular episodes of 1993 as well as the series. See more »

Look at Yourself In the Mirror Top Dog
26 April 2017 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

I am a Nigerian woman and I have read and studied what African Americans went through to get equal rights and end segregation. It especially broke my heart reading about Ruby Bridges, who because of her skin colour, parents withdrew their children from the elementary school, all the teachers except one refused to teach her and she had to be taken to school and taken home every day by four federal marshals for her protection. Therefore I was furious with the President of the fraternity Will and Carlton wanted to join. True, Carlton is sheltered and privileged but he represents how far Civil Rights had gone- how many boys before he was born were allowed to go to a top class prep school? The idea of rising through your humble beginnings and work hard is to make a better life for yourself, not look down on those who have and then call them sell outs. People like Top Dog will blame white people, saying they are the ones holding the black man down, when in fact it's people like him who are guilty of it! A very good episode.
