Capitol Hill Screening of "Bridging the Divide"!

<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/bb7d08192c/04399e82c1/a3a430d99a>
Join us Thursday, *April 14* at Capitol Hill in D.C. for a very special
screening. The NBPC-supported doc *Bridging the Divide: Tom Bradley and the
Politics of Race
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/bb7d08192c/04399e82c1/e9ddf5aec4>* tells the
story of a remarkable first in American politics: the 1973 election of Tom
Bradley, the first black big-city mayor elected by an overwhelmingly white
population. His unique ability to build bridges across racial divides
created an extraordinary multi-ethnic coalition, which brought inclusion
and access, ushered in police reform and sealed his legacy as a force for
change in American politics.

This event will feature reflections by members of Congress on the
importance of diverse representation in politics. Special guests
include *Lorraine
Bradley* (daughter of Mayor Tom Bradley) and filmmakers *Lyn Goldfarb*
and *Alison
Sotomayor*.

*Click here to register for the screening.
