You can honor living history this month at a Delaware 87ers home game at the Bob Carpenter Center. The NBA G League team has partnered with the City of Wilmington for a celebration of Black History Month, where selected community leaders will be presented with the honorary game ball.

When the Sevens take on the Canton Charge Feb. 13, the honoree will be Paulette Sullivan-Moore, who became the first African-American woman to be sworn into the Delaware Bar in 1977.
