(KPLR) – The struggle for racial equality in 1960’s St. Louis was marked by activism, protests, boycotts and marches for civil rights. At the forefront of that activism, was Percy Green. Green used non-violent tactics and civil disobedience to draw attention to discrimination, from climbing the Gateway Arch in protest of minority workers not being hired.
To infiltrate the highly controversial Veiled Prophet event, Green and the activist group "Action" unmasked the so called "Prophet." This put a dent in the St Louis tradition. It as all in an effort to change history, and civil rights for all.
