Class Memories From 1966

Grew up in the rural area without indoor plumbing or running water, a luxury 'city folk' took for granted! Played basketball just for the shower-thought then, still do, that the coaching staff made Neanderthals appear intelligent (sorry!) Teachers I have very positive memories of are: Collins (who had faith in me); Singleton; Morris; Welch; virtually all senior class teaching staff. ECB band "Big Blue" and the Cavaliers dance band-the absolute best. Played Carnegie Hall 1993, Dizzy Gillespie was the highlighter-this was at the 2nd Baha'i World Congress. (Hurrah Truman Welch) Developed a love for writing, although I was not good at it, now it is my passion; latest book will be released September 2010 in Hanoi, my adopted home and one of the greatest cities we have ever visited. I remember discussing writing (66) with a female classmate-I cannot remember who she was; but, I have often wondered if she pursued her passion as well.

I think it is extremely important that we remember the following students: Larry Davidson COOK; Willie James CATTRELL; Abraham POWELL; and Jimmy Laverne WILLIAMS-all black men killed in action in Vietnam-none, because of race, could then attend our school. When Williams was killed in 1966, Mayor Demp Thrash prevented him from being buried in the city cemetary. The question many (North) Vietnamese asked me was: "Why do American blacks fight us?" That is a good question to ponder. Those who foreget history truly are doomed to repeat it!
