Scott Green

It’s with deepest sympathy for members and friends of the Green family that we acknowledge the loss of Scott Green, the youngest of the Green siblings. Scott was a member of Little Rock’s “Lost Class” the result of the closing of all Little Rock high schools following the 1957 Integration Crisis at Central High School. As a result of this, Scott had to complete his 10th grade year in Oakland, CA. Scott was an Air Force Veteran who was stationed for a time in North Dakota where he completed his GED requirements. Following his discharge, Scott joined a construction labor union prep program, directed by his brother, Ernest Green. Scott became the first black member of the NYC Sheetmetal Workers Union #28, and fought against Union discrimination until his death at 76 years of age. Scott will be dearly missed and forever loved and remembered by his family and friends and by those of us who were fortunate enough to come to know him through this project.
