Screening Bridging The Divide: Tom Bradley And The Politics Of Race

A film by Lyn Goldfarb and Alison Sotomayor
Narrated by Alfre Woodard
Runtime: 56 min.

The award-winning PBS documentary that explores race, coalitions, police brutality and police reform, and shows how an election made a difference.

BRIDGING THE DIVIDE tells the story of Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley-the nation’s first African American mayor elected in an overwhelming white city.
Mayor for an unprecedented 20 years, Tom Bradley transformed the city of Los Angeles into a world-class metropolis and became a formidable force for change in American politics.

BRIDGING THE DIVIDE raises critical issues about race, coalitions and policing in urban America. It is especially relevant during these times when the nation is at a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice and police brutality.
