Vanderbilt University has partnered with PepsiCo, Hoopbus, and Metro Nashville Parks to provide for the installation of a new outdoor basketball court at Watkins Park in North Nashville.
Hoops and Hope is a celebration of the North Nashville community’s resilience, creativity, and hope. It reminds us of the power of collaboration and the importance of preserving our history and culture. The event will celebrate the legacy of Perry Wallace, the first African American basketball player in the Southeastern Conference. Wallace, who died in 2017, made history when he enrolled at Vanderbilt in 1966 and broke the color barrier in the SEC.
The event will take place on Thursday in honor of Juneteenth and will feature basketball clinics, games, activities for all ages, food, and music. To help our local community centers, please bring a sports-related item for donation.
This event will take place at Watkins Park. For more information about this event, please visit the website https://www.vanderbilt.edu/diversity/hoopsandhope/.
