Known as Bruce's Beach, the resort had offered Black families a place to enjoy the California life and was a labor of love for owners Charles and Willa Bruce .
On Thursday, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed legislation that will enable the county to return the beachfront property to their descendants.
The two lots are worth approximately $75 million in total, officials confirmed to CNN earlier this year .
The houses directly next to the property have hefty price tags of around $7 million each.
"This is what reparations look like," said Bradford, insisting that the county is not giving anything to the Bruce family, yet simply returning their stolen property.
It was one of the few beaches where Black residents could go because so many other local beaches did not permit Black beachgoers.
White supremacists and Klan members posted "no trespassing' signs" and slashed tires so Black families would avoid the area. »
