BRIDGING THE DIVIDE tells the story of Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, the first African American mayor elected in a major American city with an overwhelmingly white majority. Released on the fiftieth anniversary of the Watts Riot, the film brings into sharp focus issues of police brutality in minority communities and the challenges of police reform. It is the story of the pressures which face our cities, the politics of race, and the complexities of coalitions in a changing America. Narrated by Alfre Woodard, and produced by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Lyn Goldfarb and Emmy Award-winner Alison Sotomayor.

Lyn Goldfarb, Producer, Director, Writer, Alison Sotomayor, Producer, Research Director, Writer, Lorraine Bradley, Tom Bradley’s eldest daughter, Robert Farrell, City Councilman 8th District from 1974-1991, Raphael Sonenshein, Exec. Dir., Pat Brown Institute of Public Affairs, Cal State L.A.
