Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History
The Laney Museum is pleased to feature “Epochs of Courage” on April 2 – June 30 for the 2018 Annual Golf Exhibition at the museum.
Epochs of Courage: African Americans in Golf is a traveling exhibition that explores the bittersweet evolution of African American Golf emerging from the Jim Crow Era. The interactive multimedia exhibition is designed to engage, educate, enhance, and entertain diverse audiences. This year's exhibition focuses on the prejudices, trials, and triumphs of African Americans involved in the sport and brings to life the horrendous encounters, legal battles, and tribulations that were surmounted. Battling and overcoming the inconceivable challenges led to astounding achievements that have not yet received the accolades they so well deserve.
