Long Description:

Ralph Bunche Park is located on the west side of First Avenue between 42nd and 43rd street. On the north end of the park there is a 50' high stainless steel shaft entitled Peace Form One created by a friend of Ralph Bunche, sculptor Daniel LaRue Johnson. The sculpture was dedicated in 1980.

In the sidewalk below the sculpture is the inscription:

PEACE FORM ONE

"PEACE TO HAVE MEANING FOR
MANY WHO HAVE KNOWN ONLY SUFFERING
IN BOTH PEACE AND WAR
MUST BE TRANSLATED INTO BREAD OR RICE,
SHELTER, HEALTH AND EDUCATION,
AS WELL AS FREEDOM AND HUMAN DIGNITY."
