Changing The Game

Lunch counters were some of the most well-known settings for desegregation efforts during the era of Civil Rights. But in Asheville, North Carolina, that battle also played out on a municipal golf course where the careers of some of the greatest Black golfers of the 1960s were launched. Host Leoneda Inge talks with one of those golfers, Billy Gardenhight, and Paul Bonesteel, director of a new documentary about the course called "Muni."

Leoneda Inge is WUNC’s race and southern culture reporter, the first public radio journalist in the South to hold such a position. She also is co-host of the podcast Tested and host of the special podcast series, PAULI. Leoneda is the recipient of numerous awards from AP, RTDNA and NABJ. She’s been a reporting fellow in Berlin and Tokyo. You can follow her on Twitter @LeonedaInge.
