 The Pre 1960 Original Harlem Globetrotter Organization "Forgotten Ones" (3360 hits)
The Pre 60 Original Harlem Globetrotters, “The Forgotten Ones”, is an organization dedicated to honoring the phenomenal career of a group of men who were once considered to be the Ambassadors of Good Will. They represented the United States of America in countries around the world, while playing for one of the most recognizable sports teams in American history. These talented basketball players amused the entire world with swift and intricate ball handling, as well as precision drill routines that became the trademark of The Harlem Globetrotters’ routines today. The notoriety of these plays reached around the world in the early twenty-first century and influenced many future young basketball players. However, their popular acclaim could not grant them access to major white basketball leagues. The color of their skin made their talent unequal to white basketball players, yet they drew more attendees at each event than most professional league games of that era. Race was the deciding factor during this period of overt discrimination, and this denial of equality continued years after their playing days were over.
