Member of “Little Rock Nine” to speak at APSU tonight

 

Keynote Speaker at 6p.m. in Music/Mass Communication Building

Civil Rights Activist Dr. Terrence Roberts

TWilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center (WNDAACC)he year was 1955, and all the seats in the hamburger eatery were reserved for white patrons, so 13-year-old Terrence Roberts ordered food to go.

While waiting, he impulsively sat down at the counter and then realized a hush had fallen over the place. Everyone seemed to be looking at him threateningly. He canceled his order and left. As he walked home, Roberts remembers wondering “what it would take for (him) to be treated like a real human being.”

Two years later, he volunteered to be one of the “Little Rock Nine” who desegregated the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Ark. After the group made several attempts to attend Central High in the fall of 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered federal troops to the school. A soldier was assigned to protect each black student, but Roberts recalls suffering physical and verbal abuse on a daily basis throughout the school year.

Roberts will be at Austin Peay State University as part of Black History Month events on campus. He will be the keynote speaker at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25 in the Music/Mass Communication Building Concert Hall. The event – sponsored by the Student Life and Leadership, Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center and Student Affairs – is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Following his presentation, he will be available for questions and a book signing. Books are available for purchase in the Ann Ross Bookstore on campus and will be available in the Music/Mass Communication Building lobby on the night of the event. Cash or check only will be accepted that night. «Read the rest of this article»
