About No Easy Way:
No Easy Way: Integrating Riverside Schools - A Victory for Community is a personal reflection by Arthur L. Littleworth supplemented by interviews and photographs that focus on the voluntary integration of Riverside Schools.
This memoir is dedicated to all who helped make integration in Riverside a success: the determined parents who wanted an equal education for their children; the Board of Education and the educators who worked tirelessly to facilitate a resolution that would meet the needs of all students in a changing world; the community that rallied to keep the peace and maintain the integrity of Riverside; and the individuals who stretched their vision to see the future and become a small part of the history of the United States.
