TYRONE BROWN -- Inspirational Speaker ♦ Former Harlem Globetrotter ♦ Children's Author ♦ Motivational Events for Kids and Adults
Since retiring from the Globetrotters in 1996, I have worked as a motivational speaker and played for Meadowlark Lemon's Harlem All-Stars. I visit 200 elementary schools each year, talking to children about everything from education to the dangers of drugs and gang violence, incorporating my ball-handling skills into my speeches.
It's something they'll never forget. I remember when I was in elementary school, one of the Globetrotters came over to the school, and I have never forgotten that!
I wish I could visit every school in the country, but for those children I will never meet I wrote the book "A Piece of Paper", now available on Amazon.
When I was nine, I wrote down a goal on a piece of paper -- “I want to be a Harlem Globetrotter”. I didn’t realize it at the time, but it took more than just hard work to reach my goal. It took a positive attitude, perseverance and determination to become a Harlem Globetrotter.
For 16 years, I worked hard to improve my game, keep a good attitude and not give up. This is the story of my journey to achieve my goal and see my dreams come true.
