520    "The intertwined story of five influential African

       in the 1930s" --|cProvided by publisher. 
520    "The Black Bruins chronicles the inspirational lives of 
       five African American athletes who faced racial 
       discrimination as teammates at UCLA in the late 1930s. 
       Best known among them was Jackie Robinson, a four-star 
       athlete for the Bruins who went on to break the color 
       barrier in Major League Baseball and become a leader in 
       the civil rights movement after his retirement. Joining 
       him were Kenny Washington, Woody Strode, and Ray Bartlett.
       The four played starring roles in an era when fewer than a
       dozen major colleges had black players on their rosters. 
       This rejection of the "gentlemans agreement", which kept 
       teams from fielding black players against all white teams,
       inspired black Angelinos and the African American press to
       adopt the teammates as their own. Washington became the 
       first African American player to sign with an NFL team in 
       the post-World War II era and later became a Los Angeles 
       police officer and actor. Woody Strode, a Bruin football 
       and track star, broke into the NFL with Washington in 1946
       as a Los Angeles Ram and went on to act in at least fifty-
       seven full-length feature films. Ray Bartlett, a football,
       basketball, baseball, and track athlete, became the second
       African American to join the Pasadena Police Department, 
       later donating his time to civic affairs and charity. Tom 
       Bradley, a runner for the Bruins track team, spent twenty 
       years fighting racial discrimination in the Los Angeles 
       Police Department before being elected the first black 
       mayor of Los Angeles" --|cProvided by publisher.
