End-of-the-week fun-fact!

Did you know that Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., & President Barack Obama were not the first & second African-Americans to receive the Nobel Peace Prize?

The first African-American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize was Dr. Ralph Johnson Bunche (1904-1971), who received the prize in 1950 for brokering the 1949 Armistice Agreement in the Middle East.
