2017

Charlie Sifford loved golf, but in the 1930’s only white people were allowed to play in the Professional Golf Association. Sifford had won plenty of black tournaments, but he was determined to break the color barrier in the PGA.

But Sifford kept playing, becoming the first black golfer to win a PGA tournament and eventually ranking among the greats in golf.
