The Superstar Story of
the Harlem Globetrotters
Harlem Globetrotters' Day (1927)
-- Basketball promoter Abe Saperstein's New York Globetrotters took the floor on this date in 1927 at Hinckley, IL. Despite the New York in their name, the Globetrotters (who included Inman Jackson, Lester Johnson and Walter Wright) hailed from Chicago's South Side. The talented African-American players — unable to play in white professional leagues — barnstormed the nation in serious basketball promotional events. They changed to Harlem Globetrotters in the 1930s and added humor to their games in the 1940s.
