Hometown Teams Flyer

The Kearny High School display is the kick-off of what will include several events held in connection with the Smithsonian’s official “Hometown Teams” exhibit at the College from mid-August through September.  HCCC Librarians Clifford J. Brooks and John DeLooper authored the grant proposal that brought the exhibit to the College. They related that “Hometown Teams” is a project of the Smithsonian’s “Museum on Main Street” program, and portrays a cultural history of the American sports landscape. The “Hometown Teams” exhibit depicts American sports and their roles within the culture of the United States. The exhibit’s photographs, artifacts, and memorabilia tell the story of people interacting with games, activities that encourage competition, fair play, and passion for a goal – the all-American ideals.
