The Harlem Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team that combines athleticism, theater and comedy. Created by Abe Saperstein in 1926 in Chicago, Illinois, the team adopted the name Harlem because of its connotations as a major black community. Over the years they have played more than 20,000 exhibition games in 118 countries.
Have you ever seen the Harlem GlobeTrotters perform live? Have you ever heard of them? I heard about them for a long time. I think it was my husband who first told me about this team.
