The Harlem Globetrotters are headed to Rupp Arena on the 19th, but one of them paid a visit to Rosa Parks Elementary Monday afternoon.

Dizzy Grant will stopped by at 1 to share some personal stories and show off some ball tricks, but his main focus was telling kids about the "ABCs of Bullying Prevention."

Described as Action, Bravery and Compassion, the campaign targets students between six and 12 years old, giving them tools they can use every day to cut down on bullying.

The kids also learned what it means to be part of a team and how they can support each other to stop bullying.

It's part of the Globetrotters' effort with the Nation Campaign to Stop Violence to reach schools and communities around the world, with 400 visits to schools and community centers every year.
