Iconic Angelenos in Black History: Thomas Bradley
In honor of Black History Month, join us each day from February 10th to the 19th as we celebrate Black Angelenos who have influenced culture, social justice, and progress in Los Angeles and, in some instances, the nation.
Today we celebrate Thomas Bradley:
Bradley was the 38th Mayor of Los Angeles, the second African American mayor of a U.S. city in 1973.
During his time as mayor Los Angeles hosted the 1984 Olympics.
In 1982 and 1986 he ran for governor of California.
His narrow loss in 1982 led to the "Bradley Effect" theory, defining the discrepancies between voter opinion polls and election outcomes between white and non-white candidates.
As we continue celebrating Black History Month with daily portraits of iconic Angelenos, check back for more features on other pioneering individuals and make sure to share this history with your friends and family. Click here for more portraits.
