Yesterday I read an article in LA Times (link here) about the descendants of the owners of Bruce Beach hoping to get their property back then I went to newspapers.com to see what information I could find out about Bruce Beach and I came across a few articles one in particular I found interesting was from 1924 published in The California Eagle-an African American newspaper from 1879-1964. That speaks about the property attempting to be taken from the Bruce family.
