The NBA celebrates its history of inclusiveness in a new spot, called “Barrier Breakers.” Set to excerpts from Martin Luther King Jr’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech, the ad displays powerful images of the League’s color barrier being broken in 1950; of Violet Palmer, the League’s first female ref; of Jason Collins, the first openly-gay player in the NBA, and more.
