The case of these six golfers who fought for the right to play their city s golf course set a nationwide precedent for desegregation of public facilities. Robertson chronicles the stories of the golfers, their lawyers, and the conservative judge just appointed by President Eisenhower, providing a vivid picture of racial segregation and the forces that brought about its end."
