Harlem Globetrotters take aim at bullying at Noelani

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Known worldwide for their outlandish talents, the Harlem Globetrotters took their skills to Noelani Elementary School Wednesday afternoon.

President Obama's alma mater was in for a treat as they learned the ABC's of bully prevention: Action, Bravery and Compassion.

"Bullying is a big situation that's going on in the mainland and probably out here in Hawaii," said "Bull" Bullard.  

"So…you never know what kid is gonna take it in. Maybe the bully will take it in and maybe stop bullying," he said.

The Harlem Globetrotters are world famous for their fancy footwork and signature ball handling skills. 

But instead of a lesson in a classroom, it was a fun-filled yet educational lesson on the school's basketball court.

"We get plenty of emails from kids and adults who say they've seen some differences in kids who are known as bullies and kids who were bullies who have decided to be different," "Flight Time" Lang said.

"If you're not brave then you won't stick up for other people," said 5th grader Chase Hedani.

All in all, a day of lessons learned and hopefully less bullying.
