Press Release

Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Karen Bass congratulated filmmakers Lyn Goldfarb and Alison Sotomayor for receiving a $50,000 Research and Development grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for their feature-length documentary, Bridging the Divide: Tom Bradley and the Politics of Race

“Mayor Tom Bradley made history, rather than simply witness history,” said U.S. Rep. Karen Bass. “For future generations, it is critical to understand this legacy and Bridging the Divide: Tom Bradley and the Politics of Race documents that journey.”         

The documentary tells the story of Mayor Bradley’s rise to power and his nationwide impact, the multi-racial coalition he developed, and a track record of inclusivity and minority empowerment he brought to the City of Los Angeles.

This is the only NEH production or development grant given in the state of California. To learn more about the documentary, visit www.mayortombradley.com.
