TSU Coach Catana Starks made own history in golf

It’s not every day a person has a movie made about their life. That person has to do something significant. Dr. Catana Starks is one of those special people with a great story to tell.

Nearly a quarter century ago, Starks became the first African-American woman to coach a men’s NCAA Division I golf team when she took the job at Tennessee State, a historically black college in Nashville. Her trailblazing efforts will be made into a motion picture titled “From The Rough” starring Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson as Dr. Starks. The film is expected to hit the big screen in the fall.
