Black Female Lawyer Joins Forest Lake Country Club

A black female lawyer is admitted as the first non-white member of a Columbia country club. 

Bowman and Brooke law firm attorney Ashleigh Wilson confirmed last week that she was admitted into the Forest Lake Country Club, breaking a color-barrier there after barring black people from joining since its 1926 opening. 

Officials at the country club say they do not discriminate about membership admission on the basis of skin color.
