Where does one even start when discussing something as controversial, yet historically significant, as the black Greek community?

Written By: Kendrick Porter Being a brand that is known for intertwining the fashion and music industries, it should be no surprise that Cross Colours had a dance troupe back in the 90s. The troupe solidified the fact that Cross Colours was a brand for the culture.  Carl and TJ’s goal of having their brand-sponsored dancers see the world came to fruition once the team started performing with the Black Expo.
