How a black college dance troupe landed a decades-old Fleetwood Mac song on the Billboard charts

This tale begins, like so many stories about rock music, in Mississippi, at a historically black college just east of the state's eponymous river and an hour and a half west of its capital in Jackson.

The Golden Girls, an all-female dance squad at Alcorn State University, are a fixture of the school's football games and events such as Mardi Gras parades, where the roughly dozen or so dancers move to the sounds of a drum line and marching band playing pop songs.
