Spur hosts a screening of the new film, Giants of Africa, seeking to answer the question: can sport really change the world?
About The Film: Inspired by the NBA’s “Basketball Without Borders” program, Giants of Africa exists to create those same opportunities for not only African youth, but also for coaches and mentors who go back to their own homeland to influence future generations. What began simply as a basketball camp in one African country has now spread across four nations: Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda. With 50-60 campers in each country, we learn about the journey that brought them to Giants of Africa.
