‘More than a Game’ exhibit honors Powell

The inspirational story of the late William Powell and Clearview Golf Club is being showcased in “More Than A Game,” an exhibit open now at the United States Golf Association Museum in New Jersey.

The exhibit highlights the creation of African-American golf clubs during the Jim Crow era, and their positive impact on communities across the country.

Founded in 1946 in East Canton, Ohio, Clearview is the only public golf course in the U.S. designed, built and owned by an African-American. The exhibit celebrates the contributions of Powell and the other men and women who made sacrifices in an effort to realize their dream of equality on the greens.
