Harlem Globetrotters To Appear in Georgetown Wednesday

Two team members will make their way over the Key Bridge from Rosslyn, Va.

Two players from the Harlem Globetrotters will be dribbling across the Key Bridge Wednesday as part of “Globetrotter Week” in DC.

They’ll start at 1:30 p.m. at the Key Bridge Marriott Hotel and walk across the Key Bridge, making their way to Holy Trinity School. The school is hosting a pep rally with the Globetrotters in attendance, according to a press release from the team.

The Globetrotters will talk to the students about the their “ABCs of Bullying Prevention” program, which was developed with the help of the National Campaign to Stop Violence.

Two players, Mighty Mitchell and Flight Time Lang will participate. Mighty Mitchell is the team’s 11th female player in 87 years.

Globetrotter week tops off with three games in the DC area this week. Visit the Globetrotter site for details.

Is that who that was! Saw them as I was coming back into town around 2pm. Lotsa cameras and two bsketball players in bright red sweat suits bouncing balls as they were walking along toward DC. Crowd of people following.
