BRIDGING THE DIVIDE: TOM BRADLEY AND THE POLITICS OF RACE tells the little known story of Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley, the first African American mayor of a major American city without a black majority. Tom Bradley (December 29, 1917 – September 29, 1998) was the five-term Mayor of Los Angeles, California, serving in office from 1973 to 1993.
We were pleased to have been shown this film in its development phase during a BADWest meeting, and screened the educational film version of it at our St. Clair Bourne Fourth Monday series. Now the new feature version will be screened at this special event, scheduled in commemoration of the Watts Riot, and will be followed by a panel “ Bridging the Divide : 1965 and 2015". It is being sponsored by the Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs at California State University, Los Angeles in partnership with UCLA, California State University, Dominguez Hills and PBS SoCaL. The screening is free with free parking , but you must register in advance. Register here https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07eb7zyfp7fef3e3a5&oseq=&c=&ch=
