Alton Black Alumni The concept of the ALTON FRIENDS OF THE 60's all began back in the late ‘90’s – early 2000’s. It was during that timeframe that several local alumni talked about and debated the virtues of a black reunion experience.

Finally, in 2003 a core group of friends decided to make that concept a reality. As a result, the Alton Friends of the 60's organization was formed and the inaugural reunion was planned and took place on Labor Day weekend, 2004. The event was a major success with more than 150 people from far and near in attendance. For many, it was the first return trip to Alton in 25-30 years. It proved to be a homecoming as well as a reunion. For most…it proved to be a time for reflection and reconnection to the events, people, and environment that helped shape and influence their formative years.
