Changing the Course: How Charlie Sifford and Stanley Mosk Integrated the PGA

This book is about Charlie Sifford
"Changing the Course: How Charlie Sifford and Stanley Mosk Integrated the PGA," penned by Peter May, chronicles the transformative alliance between Charlie Sifford, the pioneering Black golfer, and Stanley Mosk, a determined California attorney general. Set against the backdrop of 1950s America, this narrative unveils their united front against the PGA’s exclusionary "Caucasians Only" policy. Prior to their meeting, efforts by Black golfers like Bill Spiller and Ted Rhodes had faltered against institutional discrimination. Sifford's relentless pursuit of equality on the greens and Mosk's legal acumen catalyzed a pivotal shift, not just in sports but in the societal acknowledgment of racial injustice. Scheduled for publication on February 20, 2024, this book is an essential read for high school students exploring themes of racial justice, perseverance, and the impact of collaborative activism in altering the course of history.
