The History of the Harlem Globetrotters
The Harlem Globetrotters trace their origins to the south side of Chicago, Illinois. They were originally formed in 1920 and started out as the Savoy Big Five. They became one of the main attractions of the Savoy Ballroom when it opened its doors for business in 1927.
They were known for putting on exhibitions of their athleticism before dances. In 1928, after a few of the members left, the remaining members founded the ‘Globe Trotters’ and would tour Southern Illinois. As their touring reach expanded, they became known as the "New York Harlem Globe Trotters".
The Globetrotters are unique because while they play basketball, they also incorporate theatrics and comedy into their games. It has been said that about 20-30% of the game is ‘real’ while the rest is their unique show.
