Ralph Bunche
By Jane Runyon

1     Ralph Bunche worked to save the human race. He cared about the people of the entire world. He had to fight injustice in his own country before he could reach the people of the world, though.
2     Ralph Bunche was born in Detroit, Michigan. The year was 1904. It was a time of turmoil and change for black people in America. Ralph's father owned his own barber shop. All of his customers were white. His grandmother had been born a slave. The white owner of the plantation had been her father, so she was very fair-skinned.
3     When Ralph was just ten years old, his family moved to New Mexico. Neither of his parents were very healthy. They thought the dry air in the West might help them. Two years after the move both parents were dead. It was now up to Ralph's grandmother to raise Ralph and his two sisters.
4     Ralph's grandmother moved the family to Los Angeles, California. Each member of the family worked to make sure they could survive. Ralph would not let his extra jobs interfere with his schooling. His outstanding intelligence became clear at an early age. He began winning prizes for his intellect beginning in elementary school.
5     The family was poor, but Ralph was able to attend UCLA after high school. His grades earned him a scholarship that paid for all his schooling. Not one to sit idly, Ralph took a job as a janitor to pay for his clothes and anything extra he needed. He still found time to play on the varsity basketball team. He was also a member of the university debate team.
