Beyond the Archives: Supreme Courts

June 24, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


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 Lillard, 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. 

Doors open @ 2pm. Event @ 2:30pm.
