Meet Dr. Terrence Roberts at Sept. 23 luncheon

Multicultural Student Services invites you to meet Dr. Terrence Roberts on Monday, Sept. 23, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the Era Bell Thompson Multicultural Center.

Roberts is one of nine teenagers who fought back  against the forces of discrimination in the late 1950s. Named “The Little Rock Nine,” this group of students was the first to experience equal access to public education after North Dakota Judge Ronald N. Davies’ landmark ruling on the integration of public schools. This changed the history of civil rights in the United States.

Lunch will be served and space is limited to 30 guests. RSVP to 777.-4259 by Sept. 6.
