Don’t Miss Out On The Most Awaited Virtual Event of the Year

Join 2000+ educators from across the country on Wednesday, July 27, and Thursday, 28 from 9:00 am PT to 12:30 pm PT for our free virtual PD event.

Keynote Speaker

Terrence James Roberts was one of the Little Rock Nine, a group of African-American students who, in 1957, were the first black students ever to attend classes at Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1999, he and the other people of the Little Rock Nine were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal by President Bill Clinton. On September 4, 1957, Roberts and eight other African American students (known as the Little Rock Nine) made an unsuccessful attempt to enter Little Rock Central High School. Despite the presence of the National Guard, an angry mob of about 400 surrounded the school.

Dr. Roberts holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University and an MSW from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is licensed in California as both a psychologist and a social worker. Currently, he is the CEO of Terrence J. Roberts & Associates, a management consultant firm.
