Rita Walters too

Re "In Bradley's shadow," Opinion, May 25

The summary of black politics in Los Angeles since the era of Tom Bradley fails to mention Rita Walters.

Walters comes from the same political tradition as Tom Bradley. To neglect to mention her is to neglect to remember the first African American woman to sit on the City Council. She is another of the trailblazers for Board of Supervisors candidates Bernard C. Parks and Mark Ridley-Thomas.
