In advance of the Harlem Globetrotters 90th year celebration, Globetrotters star Anthony "Buckets" Blakes is in Savannah to talk to local students about the Globetrotters.

Blakes will bring messages of bullying prevention to local schools, as well as talk to the students about the importance of character and physical fitness.

He will also visit the Children's Hospital to spread smiles. He explained what makes a Globetrotters game so special.

"You know, we've been entertaining generations since 1926. This is our 90th anniversary. It's pretty excited when you come out into the game and you're sitting on the bench and you look across and you see everybody laughing and having a good time and they aren't thinking about anything else except what is going on in the arena,” said Blakes.

The Harlem Globetrotters will bring their 2016 World Tour to the Savannah Civic Center on Thursday, March 10th at 7 p.m.
