Over the course of many years, Washington, DC, basketball legend Pennington Greene has had the opportunity to interview over 100 people who have contributed to the city’s basketball history. In 2022, Mr. Greene, along with veteran filmmakers Dave Lilling, and Vinnie Perrone, began the process of distilling this treasure trove of oral histories into a multipart series documenting Washington’s longstanding love and appreciation of basketball.

Join us as they screen a trailer for the developing project, share some of the original oral history interviews, and discuss what it has meant to undertake this labor of love.


This program is part of the festivities for the unveiling of a new statue of DC basketball and civil rights legend E.B. Henderson on the campus of the University of the District of Columbia.
