"A Missing Link In History: The Journey of African Americans in Golf"

Incredible work in chronicling the significant evolutionary history of African Americans in golf.  These powerful words tell the story of our unsung heroes.

A wonderful celebration of a significant point in American history.

This ground-breaking work gives names, dates, events at the dawn of the American golf craze (early 20th century)... "A Missing Link In History" is obviously a labor of love for the author.

"A Missing Link In History is the most comprehensive book I have read on Black golf history.  Awesome work!"

"African American Golf History Brain-Aerobics"

We used Brain-Aerobics for family night.  It was perfect.  Had something for my 6 year old, teenager, and my husband and me.  We had so much fun!

Loved the debate part and tongue twisters.

"Fun book of puzzles.  My students loved playing the FORE! Bingo game." 

What a different way to learn about an unusual history. Fantastic!
