Caption: One of the scenes outside the St. Louis Cathedral, 4431 Lindell Boulevard, on Oct. 8, 1946, the day of Archbishop Joseph E. Ritter's installation. Among those kneeling in prayer on the front steps are three young black women. When Ritter was installed, blacks could attend only a few of the area Catholic schools. Ritter would change that the following summer, and mince no words when opposition erupted among white parents. (Arthur Witman/Post-Dispatch)
