Our next public program -

How Palo Alto Impacted My Life: The Game Would Not End

Speaker: Dave Newhouse

Sunday, January 26, 2020
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Palo Alto Arts Center
1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto

Join us on January 26 to hear Dave Newhouse speak about one of his books, "The Game Would Not End," the story of a 1962 championship basketball game between Ravenswood High School of East Palo Alto and St. Elizabeth High School of Oakland. The game took place on the Stanford campus and was notable for several reasons, but mostly due to the ending: Nate Branch made a perfect swish in the 5th overtime to win the game for Ravenswood. Nate later went on to play for the Harlem Globe Trotters for 10 years. Nate is expected to be in attendance as well as some of the other players from Ravenswood.
