The golfer husband recommends this for history buffs and golf fans. It stands as another historic perspective on race in America. There were many talented black golfers long before Tiger; sadly, owing to discriminatory restrictions they didn't get the recognition they deserved. As a result the sport is not as diverse as it could be.
