Woman drags basketball hoop around to ‘break that tension’ in her community
June 9, 2020
This is Stephania Ergemlidze and she wanted to help ease tensions between police & protesters in her community "the only way she knows how."
For her, that was basketball.
She, with the help of a few friends, dragged around a portable basketball hoop all over Philly to bring people together with some one-on-one basketball. She was inspired to do something after seeing her city divided over the ongoing protests.
"I just wanted to try to bring everybody together and break that tension or the barrier that's been there the last week really."
