Simple Not Easy
Reflections on community social responsibility and tolerance
Terrance Roberts

"Terrence Roberts is in the truest sense an upstander — an individual whose voice and actions compel us to explore difficult topics and challenge us to face our shared history, honestly. His words and reflections celebrate the notion of difference, model socially responsible behavior and promote tolerance in our daily lives. Reading this book, you will be inspired, in Dr. Roberts's words, to 'think beyond the ordinary."
Margot Stern Strom, Executive Director, Facing History and Ourselves, Inc.

"Terrence Roberts challenges all of us to make the world more inclusive by adjusting our 'mental maps.' He reminds us that we will not achieve that long-sought beloved community until we recognize the value of each individual—until we affirm each other. Simple, Not Easy is one trailblazer's mingling of history and contemporary matters to engage a new conversations on community, social responsibility and tolerance. A powerful book by a civil rights legend."
Lawrence J. Pijeaux, Jr., Ed.D., President and Chief Executive Officer Birmingham Civil Rights Institute
