Tom Bradley’s Impossible Dream: Community Screenings in Los Angeles

Join filmmakers Lyn Goldfarb and Alison Sotomayor for a series of Cal Humanities-supported community screenings and discussions of Tom Bradley’s Impossible Dream, a 46-minute educational documentary narrated by Shari Belafonte on the five-term Mayor of Los Angeles. Bradley’s 1973 election made history and was a political first in America—he was the first African American mayor of a major U.S. city elected without a black majority. Tom Bradley’s Impossible Dream provides historical perspective on many issues and themes that are still critically relevant today—race and politics, police and minority communities, shifting urban demographics—and is designed for use schools, community colleges and community organizations.

Tom Bradley’s Impossible Dream will be shown on Thursday, February 12, 6 pm at First AME Church, 2270 South Harvard Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90018. Following the screening, the filmmakers and Lorraine Bradley (Tom Bradley’s daughter) will participate in a Q&A moderated by First AME Pastor J. Edgar Boyd

More screenings will be announced soon at www.mayortombradley.com.

Tom Bradley’s Impossible Dream was supported by Cal Humanities through the California Documentary Project.
