Christopher S. Parker and “Fighting For Democracy” earn the 2010 Ralph J. Bunche Award

Last week, the American Political Science Association announced its 2010 awards for excellence in the study, teaching, and practice of politics. Among the winners is PUP’s Christopher S. Parker, whose Fighting for Democracy: Black Veterans and the Struggles Against White Supremacy in the Postwar South earned him the 2010 Ralph J. Bunche Award. Congratulations, Christopher!

The Ralph J. Bunche Award is presented to the best scholarly work in the field of political science from the preceding calendar year that “explores the phenomenon of ethnic and cultural pluralism.”

All of this year’s APSA awards will be given out at the 2010 APSA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on September 2. Read this press release for a full list of winners as well as more information on the awards ceremony.
