Road to Little Rock Premieres in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

Tonight and tomorrow you can get a first-hand account on what it was like to be in Little Rock, Arkansas during the civil rights era. Bismarck State College and the North Dakota Historical Society is hosting Dr. Terrence Roberts, a member of the Little Rock Nine.

The Little Rock Nine were the first black students able to attend school after it was made law for schools to be integrated. Roberts will have a conversation with the public about discrimination and share what growing up in that time was like.

"Even though I had experienced American discrimination in all of its manifestations before that, this time the violence was extremely intense," says Dr. Terrence Roberts.

A free screening of the movie The Road to Little Rock will be held tonight at BSC's Sidney Lee Auditorium. Dr. Roberts will also speak at a free conference tomorrow in BSC's Bavendick Stateroom.
