Manhattan Beach unveils new plaque at Bruce’s Beach park

Summary by Ground News
The new marker honors Black entrepreneurs Willa and Charles Bruce, who ran a seaside resort for Black beachgoers in the early 20th century. City leadership in the late 1920s took the land through eminent domain for racially motivated reasons, under the guise of needing more park land. The original plaque focused mostly on early, White developer George Peck's role in allowing Black people to buy beachfront land in Manhattan Beach.
