“Where Big HBCU Dreams Begin!”

Company Overview 

Steposaurus Kids is an Edutainment brand that teaches youth about the legacies and accomplishments of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Historically Black Greek Letter Sororities and Fraternities using fun and innovative digital and print content. The brand also uses its digital platform to celebrate the academic excellence and outstanding community service of youth nationwide. 

The brand was inspired by 3-year-old Asha Mumin, who heard the old school Historically Black Greek Sorority and Fraternity song that sings "Step Step, Soul-Stepping Sorors (Brothers)" and remixed it, cleverly singing to herself "Step Step, Oh Steposaurus" with her toy dinosaur. Like in mathematics, the Greek symbol Σ (Sigma) in our logo represents the sum of our love, admiration, and respect for all HBCUs.

What are HBCUs?

As defined by the United States Department of Education, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are institutions that were established before 1964, with an original mission to educate African-Americans, that maintains current accreditation. There are currently 101 HBCUs in the 19 states, the  District of Columbia, and US Virgin Islands.  

What are Historically Black Greek Fraternities and Sororities? 

Historically Black Greek Fraternities and Sororities, who comprise the National Pan-Hellenic Council, or the Divine 9, are prestigious organizations founded as early as 1906 by African-Americans, with a focus on scholarship, and life-long community service. Today, they are international organizations, with over 2 million members in chapters worldwide.
