This unit encourages students to explore the life, accomplishments, and legacy of Ralph Bunche, an African American who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1951 for his work at the United Nations in brokering the 1949 armistice after the first Arab-Israeli conflict. Later in his UN career, he was involved with the Congo Crisis of 1960. Both negotiations serve as excellent conflict mediation models. Other lessons examine his preparation for eventual work with the United Nations as one of the first African-Americans acquiring an education at the University of California, Los Angeles and Harvard, his work with Gunnar Myrdal on race relations in America, and his involvement in the Civil Rights movement.
