The voluntary integration of Riverside's schools in 1965 is a local story of national significance told by Arthur L. Littleworth, elected chairman of the school board at that time. While his personal reflections form the core of No Easy Way: Integrating Riverside Schools - A Victory for Community, interviews with numerous community leaders - parents, teachers and students who participated in, and were affected by this struggle bring balance to his perspective. The book, edited by Dawn Hassett, is richly illustrated by maps, original messages, including one from Ronald Reagan to Arthur L. Littleworth, and numerous historic photographs, some never before published, including that of Lowell School after the fire.
