California lawmakers vote to return resort worth $72M to descendants of a rich black man who owned the property a century ago till they were forced out by white neighbors and the KKK


California lawmakers have unanimously voted to return a resort worth $72 million on Los Angeles's Manhattan Beach on Thursday to descendants of a wealthy black man whose land was taken over by white racist neighbors and the KKK.



Resort owners, Willa and Charles Bruce purchased 'Bruce's Beach' in 1912 and built the first West Coast resort for black people during an era of segregation. The resort was known as a place where blacks can come and relax without having to face any racism or segregation.








Racist group, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) tried to burn it down, and white neighbors harassed the couple and their customers.
