The Globetrotters will face a great challenge this year, as the infamous Washington Generals are more determined than ever to beat the Globetrotters. The Generals are on a mission and will do whatever it takes to win. They plan to evoke a new strategy that is sure to give the Globetrotters a run for their money, despite the Globetrotters’ 98.7 winning percentage and over 25,000 wins since 1926.
The Generals are the master mind of the late Louis “Red” Klotz, who passed on July 12, 2014. The last time one of Klotz’s teams beat the Globetrotters was on Jan. 5, 1971, thanks to a last-second basket by Klotz in Martin, Tenn.
Known worldwide as the Ambassadors of Goodwill™, the Globetrotters will honor a “Hometown Hero” at each of their 310-plus games in North America. The team is searching for active, wounded or retired members of the military who have made their community proud with their brave service and exemplary character. Fans can nominate “Hometown Heroes” at harlemglobetrotters.com. The Globetrotters will also play a portion of each game with a camouflage basketball as a sign of respect to all who protect our freedom.
With a star-studded roster featuring Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, Firefly Fisher and Moose Weekes, plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu* – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment. With incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction, this must-see event is guaranteed to entertain the whole family. After the game, Globetrotter stars will sign autographs and take photos with fans.

As Co-founder and sponsor of the “California National Juneteenth Freedom Day”, A Holiday Observance Bill, originally signed by Governor Gray Davis in June 2002, the dream continues on. This holiday observance is the celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation, signed into law, freeing all people born on American soil, by President Abraham Lincoln, in 1863. The news of that freedom order did not reach the last slaves in Texas, until June 19, 1865. This June 19, 2015, will be the 150th Anniversary of the Juneteenth, and completion of that freedom.
As Co-Chair of the National Education Committee, with the National Juneteenth Observance Foundation, (N.J.O.F.), along with Dr. Ronald Myers, Chairman, we are continuing our efforts to make Juneteenth a Holiday Observance across the United States of America and abroad. June is Black Music Month, and June 2015, is the “25th yr. Anniversary of the Juneteenth Celebration in Pomona Valley, the birthplace of the holiday bill for California. An Enshrinement for the Holiday Bill Observance was placed in Ganesha Park, to serve as a reminder of that time in history. I have dedicated my life to keeping Juneteenth alive, and educating our youth, and our communities about its significance. On Saturday, June 27, 2015, will be the “3rd Annual Emancipation Proclamation Dinner & Phineas Newborn Jr. Music Arts Scholarship Fundraiser”, an Extravaganza musical event, and Juneteenth Student Contest. Please check website for location announcement. So, save the date and be involved.
