Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame has been around since 1999. And it's simply an amazing museum, and this from someone who loathes basketball. However, the curators of this museum have done a great job telling the story of women's basketball, and the impact it has had on changing social attitudes in this country. I learned that Sandra Berenson a teacher at Smith College actually started Women's Basketball at her college just before the end of the 19th century. I also enjoyed the story of the All-American Red-Heads, a women's basketball team that was started during the depression years of the nineteen-thirties. If you wanted to play on the team, you had to have red hair. This team went on to popularize women's basketball, and provide entertainment in a very bleak time in our nation's economic history. The team played other teams, including some all men teams, and won at least 100 every year for forty-some years. So if you're in Knoxville, treat yourself to a great exhibition at the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. You won't be disappointed!
