This segment starts with a clip of Tom Brokaw interviewing former-mayor Sam Yorty in the 1970s. Yorty was being challenged in the mayoral race by Tom Bradley, who became LA's first African-American mayor.

Bradley's press secretary Bob Kholos tells us that LA's racial landscape was much different back then.
