Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Ralph Bunche. This is a half-page worksheet with a two-sentence reading and two comprehension questions. In other words, thin gruel for a diplomat of Mr. Bunche’s stature; he did, after all, win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950. In the course of preparing this post I learned that he was present at the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Furthermore, he was also deeply involved in the global decolonization movement after World War II.
So, this sparse introduction serves the barest of purposes in familiarizing students with Ralph Bunche and his accomplishments. Still, unless a social studies teacher works Mr. Bunche into a unit on decolonization, students may never hear his name. So, if this modest document resolves that, perhaps it is useful after all.
If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
