Black History Month Movie Night at The Bridge Golf Learning Center

Uneven FairwaysWe’re screening two films about the history of African Americans and golf on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 6 p.m. in The Bridge Golf Learning Center.

Uneven Fairways: The Story of the Negro Leagues of Golf focuses on the United Golf Association, golf’s equivalent of baseball’s Negro Leagues. Narrated by Samuel Jackson, this film tells the story of the black golfers who never got the full opportunity to play against the best in the world because of the PGA’s caucasians-only clause.

Bill Powell: More Than a Game is a USGA-produced movie about the man who built Ohio’s Clearview Golf Club, the first and only public golf course in America designed, built, owned and operated by an African-American.
