This month, graduate Artel Great was honored as valedictorian at the June 11 commencement ceremony. Upon deeper investigation, it seems Great is one in a line of Black valedictorians to graduate from the prestigious university.

Ralph Johnson Bunche was another Black valedictorian who graduated summa cum laude from UCLA in 1927. Bunche was an American political scientist and diplomat who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950 for his mediation in Palestine in the 1940s. He was the first Black to be honored with the Prize in history.
