Could this 1983 AKA probate be the oldest available on the internet?

We just came across this rare video from Tennessee State University of the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha probating their 1983 line on their campus. Personal camcorders were not easily available to students until the 1980s and this is the oldest AKA probate we have been able to find throughout our time running WatchTheYard.com. There is a very high chance that this could be the oldest video of its kind available on the internet.

Do you know anything about this video that we could add to this story?
