December 9, 1971, Ralph Bunche A World Warrior For Peace Passed Into Eternal Peace
Many African-Americans think that the first African-American to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was Martin Luther King Jr. Well. in reality, the very first Nobel Peace Prize awarded to a black man was given to Ralph Bunche for his tireless work done to secure peace in the Middle East.
I am sure that Dr. Bunche would surely question some of the decisions being made internationally now. Yet on this date December 10, 1950, in his words, my voice I celebrate the achievement of Ralph Bunche that elevated the posture of Black Americans on the world stage in 1950.
Today I honor his passing 48 years ago by spending some moments with one of the highlights of Dr. Bunche’s remarkable career. His winning of the Nobel Peace Prize.
