Ralph Bunche Racism Against Blacks Can Be Overcome, Can It?

In his years as a Howard University professor in the 1930s, Ralph J. Bunche subscribed to Marxist ideas.  However by 1949 Bunche was Acting United Nations Mediator for Palestine and had become much more conservative.  His then contemporary views were reflected in a commencement address given at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee on May 30, 1949.
