Peace Mediator The Story of Ralph Bunch


Track One
Peace Mediator Ralph Bunch

Track 2 Rene Marie our musicial guest

“Peace Mediator” is the compelling story of Ralph Bunche, the first Black American to win the Noble Peace Prize. He was the mediator for the United Nations in the years immediately following World War II. He negotiated the peace settlement between the new nation of Israel and the states surrounding Palestine. In this drama, Bunche understanding of history and politics is substantiation for Durham’s underlying thesis that the Afro-American struggle is a paradigm for all those struggling for justice and dignity. He was born in Detroit. He lost his parents when he was eleven years old and he went and lived in what is now Watts, in Los Angeles, with his grandmother, who was illiterate but was a person who believed that, especially for Black Americans, education was the key. She insisted on Bunche not only finishing high school but also going to UCLA and later to Harvard and she insisted on him studying political science and not the usual subjects that folks thought that Black Americans should pursue.
He was appointed head of the UN Palestine Commission, where he drafted the United Nations' Palestine partition plan which culminated in the creation of the state of Israel. As war broke out between Israelis and Arabs, Bunche's task was to mediate between the two sides and to set up a peaceful cease-fire. In 1949, after 81 days of negotiations, Bunche worked out the "Four Armistice Agreements."
Bunche won worldwide admiration for his role in these delicate negotiations and was given a hero's welcome on his return to New York, complete with tickertape parade. Egyptian and Israeli diplomats hailed him as "one of the great men of the world" and in 1950 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
