Thanks to the Wolfson Archives’ WTVJ Collection, we’re able to share this look back at Miami Springs history and the day when the Golf Course (at the time owned and operated by the City of Miami) fully integrated to allow blacks to play on the greens any time they wanted.

Here’s the description of the caption from YouTube:

“In the case of this clip, three African-American men playing golf made news — because they were playing at the Miami Springs Golf Course…On a Thursday. Previously the course had been open to black Miamians only on Mondays, but on April 17 1958 the City [of Miami] Commission threw in the towel, deciding not to appeal a federal court decision that ruled its segregated policy illegal.”
