...Beautiful day of  camaraderie and fun that neither the rain nor the clouds could dampen. Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum:  A history lesson that provided more insight into the "peculiar institution" of slavery -- right here in Memphis -- and the anti-slavery sympathizers like Jacob Burkle (original owner of the Burkle Estate), who helped fleeing slaves along the Underground Railroad, find their way to the Mississippi River and north to freedom.
 
...Stax Musuem:  What can we say?  A trip to the recording studio that catapulted Memphis to the "big time" with familiar Stax artists like Isaac Hayes, Johnny Taylor, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, David Porter, Sam & Dave...and more.  Memorabilia and film brought the memories of  the Stax heyday to life!

Pictures, trophy case gawking, "tales of the 'hood' (including a few lies), memories, memories, memories!

 Warriors '64 Reunion 2014

Billy J. Walker, Sr.

Resides in Memphis, TN

Spouse: Lillian Anderson Walker  

     (also Warriors '64) 

Praises be to God on this great and momentous occasion, the "Golden 50th Reunion" of Warriors ’64, Booker T. Washington High School, Memphis, TN, this June 27-29, 2014 weekend.  We gathered from near and far.  Streets, roads, highways, byways, rail or airways brought in the BTW 1964 Class from all over the continental United States to join in this once in our lifetime celebration.

I extend sincere thanks to the Warriors ’64 Reunion 2014 Organizing Committee, Sub-Contact Committee, as well as many other classmates, who met and contributed special talents and resources during the past year. I bow in full Warriors ’64 gratitude to you for your dedication and hard work to host and participate in a reunion that will stay in our memories for years.

It was with the mission to help create wonderful memories – and we have some beautiful memories -- that out of the past fifty years, I have either served as Chair or Co-Chair of Reunion ’79, Reunion ’94, Reunion ’99, Reunion ‘04 and the current “Golden 50” (2014) commemoration.  With zealous Warriors ’64 pride and vigor, I have served to the best of my ability – physically and mentally.  Now with changing priorities: primarily my health, personal and business pursuits; it is with humbled respect that I resign a leadership role in any further Warriors ’64 Reunion or other activities. I step aside -- but not “out.”  I will continue in any future support role, as needed, to continue our tribal bond of friendship and camaraderie.

I extend my special thanks to each fellow classmate and each guest, who attended and participated in our Golden Reunion -- for every striving, for every sacrifice you have made in any way to help make this reunion an unforgettable life’s photo. As proud Warriors, let us borrow from Julius Caesar: “We came. We saw. We conquered.” -- But, in the words of ANY BTW Warrior, "We're Still Tops! We Lead and Others Follow!" Until we meet again…I leave you with words from John's Third Letter, Verse 2, NASB:  “Beloved (Warriors ’64), I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in  good health, just as your soul prospers.”

In Warriors ’64 Love,

Billy J. Walker, Sr.
