I hope you are all having a good day today. I tell you, our Ancestors watch over me everyday. Just when I say, this is some **, I am reminded constantly, of whose shoulders we stand on and the greatness that is Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
Last night, I had the opportunity to speak to the Hon. Bro. Robert Booker, DSC #141, out of Knoxville, TN. In 2002, Bro. Booker published the book Eighty-Three Years of History in the Southeastern Region. We had a great conversation, him kicking me historical facts, telling me stories about Conclaves before my time (Bro. Booker was made at Knoxville College in 1958) and stories about legends in Sigma like the Hon. William E. Doar and Hon. Von Mizell, and his days in researching our history.
He has a few of his 2002 history books left if you are interested, but not many, so if you get one or have one, it maybe a collectors item. If you want a book, you can contact Hon. Bro. Booker directly. It is best to call him after 9pm EST.
This just reaffirms that we need to embrace our seasoned Brothers, make sure that they get to frat meetings and fraternity events, and learn from them, and all that they are willing to teach us.
God Bless Hon. Bro. Robert Booker
