A New Look at Ralph Bunche by John Green, Ralph J. Bunche Repository, Inc. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 6–8 P.M.

* note that Feburary’s event will take place on a Friday!

It has been 68 years since native Detroiter Ralph Bunche was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950. Not only was he the first person of color to receive the honor, he was also the first Michigan native to win the prize. Dr. Bunche received the prize for his efforts to arrange a cease-fire and work as a mediator during the Arab-Israeli War in 1948. Mr. John Green, who established the nonprofit Ralph J. Bunche Repository, Inc., will talk about the importance of recognizing Dr. Bunche for his accomplishments and why people should be familiar with this remarkable Detroiter.
