Bridging the Divide: Tom Bradley and the Politics of Race

Production of a 90-minute documentary film exploring the life and career of Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley (1917-1998), first African American mayor of Los Angeles who was elected in 1973 and served until 1993.

"Bridging the Divide: Tom Bradley and the Politics of Race" is a 90-minute feature documentary designed for a national PBS broadcast in 2014. The documentary tells the little-known story of how Mayor Tom Bradley, the first African American mayor of a major U.S. city elected with an overwhelmingly white population, changed Los Angeles through an extraordinary multi-racial coalition, and in the process, transformed American politics.
