$75 Million Bruce's Beach Returned to Black Family From Which It Was Seized
The Bruce Family will get their $75 million beach back, thanks to a new California bill. Charles and Willa Bruce purchased Los Angeles beach front property in 1912 and turned it into a resort open to Black customers. It was taken away from them by the government in the 1920s. The land that was originally sold to the Bruce’s for $1,225 is now valued around $75 million. With Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature, Bruce’s Beach will actually be owned by a Bruce.
