Today we have a heart to heart conversation about our history with a man who helped to define it.
In the Classroom is Dr. Terrance Roberts, one of "The Little Rock Nine" (the nine brave children who were the first to voluntarily integrate the Little Rock Public Schools in 1957).
Jade Harrell and Dr. Roberts discuss today's opportunities and challenges for children and communities.
Dr. Roberts holds a PhD in Psychology from Southern Illinois University and a MSW from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is licensed in California as both a psychologist and a social worker. He has served since 1975 as CEO of Terrence J. Roberts & Associates, a management consultant firm. The group offers expertise in several areas, including managing racial and ethnic diversity and developing multicultural awareness.
Dr. Roberts is the author of Lessons from Little Rock, a memoir about his life experiences, and the recently published Simple, Not Easy: Reflections on Community, Social Responsibility, and Tolerance. Both books provide insight into Dr. Roberts’ depth of concern about the future of the United States.
