From the Rough, starring Academy Award nominees Taraji P. Henson and Michael Clarke Duncan and Tom Felton, is the inspirational true story of Catana Starks from historically black university Tennessee State, who became the first African-American woman ever to coach an all-men’s team at the collegiate level. Through grit and determination, she overcame incredible odds and deep-seated prejudice from all corners to guide a rag-tag group of golfers to an all-time record championship season.
Tarajai stopped by The Wendy Williams Show Yesterday in a very spring ish orange ensemble to Promote her new movie and talk about her recent happenings in her life! I am excited to see play Catana Starks, a african american golf coach who never stopped believing in herself as well as her young athletes.
