On June 19, 1950, three African Americans attempted to enter the Fairgrounds Park Pool in St. Louis, Missouri, in contravention of the city's segregation policy, which had been re-instituted following one day of integration in 1949 which culminated in The Fairgrounds Park Riot. A pool attendant told the three African Americans attempting access in June, 1950 that they needed permits to enter the pool.
