Midnight Basketball

Douglas Hartmann

University of Chicago Press

Chapter 6 examines how midnight basketball programs were reformed in the aftermath of the 1994 crime bill debates. It details the consolidation of a more liberal, prevention-oriented coalition in support of sport-based programming as well as the emergence of a new, more mature understanding (or theory) of the role of sport in social intervention and risk prevention. Key elements include: seeing sport as a tool for recruitment and retention; the importance of non-sport programming; collaboration with other social programs, agencies, organizations, and initiatives. The globalization or global diffusion of the midnight basketball idea is also discussed.
