Dear Educator:

Various educational tools, including a teacher's guide and instructor’s notes, have been developed by top educators to complement the use of the video Ralph Bunche: An American Odyssey and the companion website. These materials will be of special interest to teachers of high school social studies and to faculty teaching courses in political science, sociology, American history, international relations, multicultural and African-American studies, and on the United Nations.

All of these materials can be downloaded from this site (see menu above) or printed copies can be obtained by e-mailing a request to or by writing to William Greaves Productions, Inc., PO Box 2044, Radio City Station, New York, NY 10101-2044.


The materials listed below are available for sale and/or rental:

  • A reprint of A World View of Race, Ralph J. Bunche's 1936 study of colonialism, with a new forward by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, David Levering Lewis (available in paperback.)
  • Ralph Bunche, The Man and His Times, a series of videotaped lectures by Ralph Bunche scholars and former colleagues at a 1986 conference sponsored by the Ralph Bunche Institute on the United Nations of the City University of New York.
  • Coming soon! A series of Video Modules that will explore key issues and areas of Ralph Bunche's life in depth.
