Bruce's Beach Set
Bruce's Beach was one of the few beaches in Southern California in the early 1900s that was not off-limits to African Americans. The City of Manhattan Beach condemned Bruce's Beach and forced out the black community in the 1920's and 30's. The City Project has worked with Bernard Bruce, the Bruces' grandson, to rename the site as Bruce's Beach. The next step is to have interpretive panels and public art faithfully, completely, and accurately tell the story of Bruce's Beach.
