The JMM visits the Washington Mystics

Posted on May 26th, 2011 by

Today Community Outreach Coordinator Rachael Binning and Education and Program Coordinator Elena Rosemond-Hoerr are in Washington DC, enjoying the sweet basketball stylings of the Washington Mystics and getting the word out about the Museum! In their honor I thought we’d showcase some of the Museum’s own collection of basketball stuff!
