Class of 1963
Sands of Time . . . "
The year we graduated ...
First students to graduate who attended Johnson High
School all four years!
The 1963 graduating class was faced with the assassination
of the US President Kennedy on November 22nd which thrust Lyndon Johnson
into the role of President and the murder two days later of Lee Harvey
Oswold by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. This was a difficult time to
become President with the mounting troubles in Vietnam where the Viet
Cong Guerrillas had now killed 80 American advisers and the continued
campaign for Civil Rights by the Black community caused violent reactions
from Whites, including Mississippi, Virginia and Alabama where the
Black Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr was arrested. Films
included "The Birds" and "The Great Escape" and
popular TV programs "The Virginian" and "Lassie".
Ladies fashions and hairstyles included fir boots and towering hair
do's for evening wear. In music the beginning of Beatlemania after
they release "I Want To Hold Your Hand/I Saw Her Standing There"
took the music world by storm.
