Black Golfers' Weekend and The Howard University Bison Golf Team Present Playing Through Film Screening
Black Golfers' Weekend made their first HBCU stop at Howard University to present Martha's Vineyard Best Feature Film. In Playing Through, Ann Gregory collides in the USGA Women's Amateur with Babs Whatling, a privileged white woman from the South. The story centers on the women's head-to-head competition in a single match with flashbacks that add rich context to the personal struggles that have shaped each of them. For both Ann and Babs, the game is as much about finding inner strength as it is about overcoming obstacles on the course. The Playing Through film screen was hosted by Master Gee of The Sugarhill Gang and featured the men and women's golf team, sports journalists, and golf enthusiasts. The event was sponsored by Flo Wines. Watch the trailer from the film, here.
