African American Golf History Multi-media Traveling Exhibition
Loved the exhibit. Great to see those who deserve credit...get credit.
Kids can learn something from this.
Very informative for anyone!
The women in golf and the black caddies are stories that I never heard before.
Before I saw this exhibit, I thought Tiger Woods was the only African American ever to play professional golf. This is great! My mom, dad, and I learned a lot.
Great for all ages. Something for everyone..
