Inspirational Black Bruins
UCLA has a rich history of African Americans who have made significant contributions to UCLA, Los Angeles and society. We've highlighted some individuals who represent a slice of that history, as well as Black Bruins who are making an impact today. They were selected in part by prominent members of the UCLA community dedicated to diversity. Tell us about Black Bruins who have inspired you!
