Terrence Roberts: Is there Race?

Terrence Roberts: Is there Race?

Dr. Terrence Roberts, one of the “Little Rock Nine,” speaks at Pepperdine University about civil rights, yesterday and today. Dr. Roberts reflects on the experience of being one of the nine African-American students who volunteered to desegregate Little Rock Central High School in 1957, and shares his perspective and wisdom on such issues as personal choice, compassion, freedom, and responsibility. Drawing from his recent publication Simple Not Easy: Reflections on Community Social Responsibility and Tolerance, the event emphasized a question-and-answer format with the students in attendance. The event took place on January 31, 2013, and was sponsored by Pepperdine University Libraries in partnership with the Black Student Association.
