RALPH BUNCHE screening at the National Arts Club 2/13 (NYC)

Please join us for a screening of William Greaves's award-winning documentary RALPH BUNCHE: AN AMERICAN ODYSSEY on Wednesday, February 13, 2008, @ 7:45 p.m. at the National Arts Club, located at 15 Gramercy Park South (20th Street). The screening is free and open to all and will be followed by a Q&A with the director.

Ralph Bunche was the first person of color to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1950. Although Bunche achieved national and international acclaim for his work as a peacemaker, much of his legacy - in decolonization, human rights, scholarship as well as the critical role he played at the United Nations - has been largely misunderstood or forgotten. The film premiered on PBS in 2001 and was shown in competition at the Sundance Film Festival.

This screening is sponsored by the President, Board of Governors and the Film Committee of the National Arts Club. For more information, visit www.nationalartsclub.org or call (212) 475-3424

William Greaves has been producing films for over 40 years, including such classics as From These Roots and Ida B. Wells: A Passion for Justice. Greaves has also been the recipient of many honors and awards, including an Emmy for his work as executive producer of the pioneering public television series, Black Journal. www.williamgreaves.com
