Harlem Globetrotters: The Team That Changed the World is a documentary that relives some of the great moments in the team's history. Narrated by Public Enemy's Chuck D., the film features interviews with many basketball legends and entertainers, like Phil Jackson, Bob Cousy, Bill Bradley and Bill Cosby. Also important to the film's core is the social and cultural impact the Globetrotters had in the black community; the documentary even has an interview with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Many of the former players give interviews, revealing their own personal takes on some of the most famous times in Globetrotter history, like the 1951 trip to Berlin and their historic victory over the NBA champion, Minneapolis Lakers in 1948. The significance of that particular victory was that the all-black Globetrotters proved they were worthy opponents of the all-white Lakers. This significantly helped speed up the racial integration of the NBA. Harlem Globetrotters: The Team That Changed the World is a presentation of the rich history and importance of an all-black basketball team that helped the progress of an entire race.moreless
