Dr. Terrence Roberts Biography

Dr. Terrence Roberts is CEO of Terrence Roberts Consulting, a management consultant firm devoted to fair and equitable practices in business and industry. Started as Terrence J. Roberts and Associates, this firm seeks to assist management personnel in the creation of workplaces conducive to employee growth and development.

A graduate of California State University at Los Angeles (BA), and UCLA (MSW), Dr. Roberts obtained his Ph.D. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.

For forty years, Dr. Roberts was a practicing clinical psychologist, first in Deer Park, California and later in Pasadena, California. During this same time period he was Director of Mental Health Services at St. Helena Hospital and Health Center; Assistant Dean of Student Services at UCLA’s School of Social Welfare; and Department Chair and faculty member in psychology at Antioch University, Los Angeles.

Dr. Roberts has taught, written about, and consulted with a variety of groups, institutions, businesses and professional organizations on issues related to race and racism in American society. It is his belief that complete resolution of these issues can only happen when we, collectively, decide to rid ourselves of the pernicious ideology of racism.

As one of The Little Rock Nine, Dr. Roberts has been in demand by a number of groups who wish to learn about the impact of the chaos in Little Rock in 1957 on the social, cultural, political, and economic life of citizens in contemporary America. This is especially true at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles where Dr. Roberts is a member of the adjunct faculty. He regularly spends time with educators from ELHI to colleges and universities as well as groups of law enforcement officers including but not limited to the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, The California highway Patrol, and the United States Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement Division. Our goal is to assist educators as they develop skills and more advanced data bases of knowledge and to encourage the officers develop more advanced understandings of the ways in which some of their attitudes about different others are established by their belief in systems founded upon mythological constructs and supported by pernicious ideologies promulgated by those who wish to preserve a static social hierarchy.

"Lessons From Little Rock," a memoir by Dr. Roberts was published on October 1, 2009. In this book he describes his experience at Central High School and talks about the salient lessons to be learned from that episode.

On February 1, 2010, his second book, "Simple, Not Easy: Reflections on Community, Social Responsibility, and Tolerance" was published. The essays in this volume seek to guide the reader toward more socially responsible positions in life.

In recognition of his contributions to society, Dr. Roberts has been the recipient of The Congressional Gold Medal, The Pere Marquette Discovery Award, The Spingarn Medal, and The Robert S. Abbott Award.
