PANACHE TRUE CRIME STORIES:

 

Quette C. Williams was the former wife of singer Billy Paul.

 

She allegedly died in Philadelphia of a possible drug overdose but it's always been rumored that she may have been murdered.

 

Williams was found slumped over the wheel of her car and police found 3 needle marks on her left arm.

 

At the time of her death, Williams was set to testify in a case concerning the couple's divorce.

 

The divorce was nullified because it was stated in an affidavit by an employee of Paul's lawyer that he forged the judge's signature on the divorce decree.

 

Williams had planned to seek $450,000 in back support for herself and her 9-year-old daughter (at the time).

 

Paul denied being the father of the child.

 

And Paul remarried since the divorce.

 

 

A year earlier, Horn's/Nighthawk Terry's co-worker JR Seavy (Soul Poppa) Campbell was a three year veteran (DJ) at the same black radio station. 

 

Seavy was found, beside a road in Des Plains, VA. with a bullet in his head, 60 miles from his Hyattesville, Md. home.

 

Cops stated that Campbell had been abducted by two men who posed as authorities and drove away in a gray sedan.

 

A passerby found the body clad only in underwear.

 

 

PART II:

 

Bobby Horn aka Nighthawk Terry was the premier D.C. radio personality at the time, overseeing WOL’s transition from tradition rock-and-roll to all-R&B and soul music in the mid-1960s. Federal documentation from 1975 tied him to a series of payola scandals, the drug world and local east coast African-American hoodlums, Howard McNair and Teddy Brown.

McNair and Brown were “let loose” by Terry, per one police report surrounding the concert, to counterfeit gigantic amounts of tickets and stage passes and flood the black market with them in the weeks preceding the concert. This set of circumstances, according to FBI documents related to Levy’s affairs, enraged Levy, McCalla and their mafia benefactors in New York and McCalla, the contingent’s alleged liaison to the event and on-site supervisor, was tasked with dealing with it.

On July 2, 1977, two days before the slate of music acts were scheduled to begin performing, McNair and Brown were both found slain in a patch of woods just a few hundred yards from the Take It Easy Ranch property – McNair and Brown were shot at point-blank range. The day following the July 4 concert, informants told the FBI, tensions boiled over between Big Nat McCalla (only black man pictured above) and Nighthawk Terry regarding a major loss of profits.

A screaming match ensued at Terry’s radio station, per multiple FBI informants, with McCalla threatening Terry and accusing him of skimming and counterfeiting more than 150,000 tickets. Terry claimed there were only 100,000 people who attended the concert, McCalla insisted it was closer to 200,000, resulting in a loss of at least nearly $1,000,000, possibly more .

Terry was portrayed by actor-comedian Cedric the Entertainer in the 2007 film "Talk To Me." One police informant told authorities that Nighthawk Terry’s body was dismembered and buried in several different spots across North Carolina farm country. Terry’s Oldsmobile was found torched in a North Carolina field in 1978.

Considered the No. 1 suspect in the McNair and Brown homicides and Terry’s disappearance, Big Nat McCalla left New York and went into hiding in Florida. He was discovered dead in a rented Ft. Lauderdale residence, sitting in a lounge chair in front of his television, his body badly decomposed on February 20, 1980.

Investigators speculate McCalla had been deceased for at least a week and was clipped by someone he knew (the home’s back door was open, a set of keys in the handle, the windows sealed shut, the heater blasting).

NOSTALGIA:

 

Little Richard once said: "Nobody can follow Tina Turner on stage because she's so electrifying!"

 

Tina came alive on stage but lived a nightmarish life offstage.

 

 

Sam Cooke was a bright spot.  She described him as a beautiful man (inside and out).

 

Allegedly, Ike taunted her when Cooke was murdered.

 

Sammy Davis, Jr. was also blown away by Ike & Tina's performances.

 

 

He even gifted Tina with a brand new Jaguar.

 

In the 1970s, Ike & Tina were forced out of Malaysia and ordered to leave behind $20,000 worth of equipment after Ike had a disagreement with a promoter who didn't provide them with a proper sound system.

 

A year prior to this incident at a Paris recording studio, someone walked off with Ike's brief case which contained $85,000.

 

 

PART 1:

 

Lincoln Perry aka Stepin Fetchit made and lost a fortune of $7 million dollars during an acting career that spanned from the 1920s-1970s.  After he suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed and unable to speak, Ben Vereen and John Wayne visited him in the hospital.

 

 

Stepin Fetchit (May 30, 1902–November 19, 1985) was the stage name of an African-American comedian and film actor, real name: Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry. Perry parlayed the Fetchit persona into a successful film career, eventually becoming a millionaire, the first black actor in history to do so. Unfortunately, Perry would mismanage his money and file bankruptcy in 1947.

But, before he did, he used to wear tailored suits and his Rolls Royce was spelled out in neon lights on the passenger door.

Allegedly, Jean Harlow was spotted with him on a few occassions in the mid 1930's, before her death. This information is omitted from all of her biographies but was revealed in a book on black stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

PART 2:

 

Rewind:

 

Lincoln Perry was ghetto-fabulous long before the term was ever coined. Long before the tabloid headline antics of singer Chris Brown, and the often vulgar displays of NFL and NBA superstars, he was the original bad boy of Black Hollywood. Known to the world as Stepin' Fetchit, he was derisively referred to as "the world's laziest man" and the "white man's negro" during the silent screen era and early 1930's Hollywood. Over on the darker side of town, Central Avenue was the nucleus of the entertainment community where most of black Hollywood were relegated, and it was definitely where they partied. As Perry's alter ego, Stepin' Fetchit played the fool on the silver screen much to the chagrin of other blacks, but looks can very often be deceiving. Step was a brilliant comedian from the old-school of minstrelsy and vaudeville, and in the process he became one of the highest paid African American entertainers of the mid-twentieth century.

His salary ranked among the top of Negro entertainers, it was still far less than that of his Hollywood peers. Still, Perry tried to match the bonafide kings of Hollywood with style and extravagant tastes, expensive clothes, and cars. Along with all of that came all the rest like the public brawls, arrests, outrageous court cases and the numerous suspensions (and rehires) from the movie studios. And then there were the young women! Teenagers, actually!

On the other hand, Lincoln Perry was a man of ostentatiousness, if not downright style. In real life, he was the new high-steppin', hip dressin' fella who had it all together while wearing custom designed and imported cashmere suits, some costing as much as $1000 a piece. Much of his wardrobe was reported to have been purchased (and retailored) directly from Rudolph Valentino's tailor after the death of the 20's movie icon in 1926. Lincoln Perry often referred to himself in such a way that clearly elevated him among the elite of Hollywood and something more than what society and the entertainment industry confined him to. Unfortunately, the free-wheeling spending and recklessness would eventually catch up with him.

Stepin' Fetchit's public feuds with other black male entertainers like Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and actor Clarence Muse are legendary.

 

With fame and the illusion of power, many women made themselves available. But Step was more attracted to the teenaged girls who may have been a bit more dazzled by the hijinks and lavish attentions of an older man. In fact, 16 seemed to be the magic age! He was already thirty-something in the spring of 1929, when he met a pretty auburn-haired high school student named Dorothy Stevenson, who aspired to be a chorus girl. A few months later, they were married. Before their short courtship began, Perry had also been involved with 17 year old Yvonne Butler, another aspiring chorus girl. After his marriage to Dorothy, Yvonne sued him for an alleged breach of promise to marry her, asking $100,000 in damages. He agreed to a compromise settlement of $5,000 - 2,500 cash and $50 a week for fifty weeks.

 

 

Dorothy Stevenson Perry filed for divorce in 1931 after Step allegedly broke her nose, jaw and chin with "his fists and a broomstick" during a brawl. Step said that as a "practicing Catholic" divorce was not an option, and they separated as Mrs. Perry's health rapidly deteriorated from tuberculosis.

Dorothy Stevenson Perry died in the fall of 1934. Her funeral drew hundreds from the ranks of black entertainment and is said to have been filmed by cameramen from Fox studios.

 

Perry's romantic relationships with underaged girls was scandalous! There was a "marriage of convenience" with Wini Johnson, a gorgeous teenaged showgirl from The Cotton Club, whose blistering affair with Perry was the gossip of Harlem and the black press in the late 1930's.

 

Step's dangerous liaison with 16 year old Juanita Randolph (left) finally put the fading, 41 year old actor behind bars in 1943. The bungalow in Los Angeles where he lived with his first wife, parents, chauffeur, Mrs. Jones the maid and whippet were but a memory. And for the most part, so was his career.

 

 

Muhammad Ali once said: "Every man wants a virgin, nothing used.  No man wants a woman who's been with other men, he wants the best.  I don't want no used car.  And I don't want a used woman."

 

 

Back in the day, a wealthy white Chicago commodities broker proved to be the father of a 22-month-old daughter by a black TV hostess.

 

The case stemmed from a paternity lawsuit filed by Shirley (Tasha) Johnson who accused Patrick H. Arbor of being the father of her daughter Kelly Krisna.

 

Johnson sought child support.

 

Arbor presented a vigorous defense and despite Johnson's prominence and local celebrity, he tried to paint her as being a prostitute who was trying to extort him despite a blood test which proved he was the father.

 

Johnson added: "He doesn't want a black child but she looks just like him!"

LUCRATIVE HOLLYWOOD INDUSTRY BEHIND THE SCENES:

 

PART 1:

 

Why aren't more black photographers stringers in Hollywood and New York?

 

All you need is a video camera, a police scanner, a car and google maps and waze apps on your cell phone.

 

Scenario: You arrive at a crime scene, a car fire or a home invasion.  You start shooting footage of the surroundings, including footage of the victims.

 

Minimum wage for 10-20 second footage is $250-$500 dollars. Multiply that price if you sell the footage to all the networks; if you have a non-exclusive deal.

 

If you were first on the scene, and shot the twin towers collapsing, that footage would go for $15,000-$25,000 and you could double and triple the pay by selling it overseas.

 

Some stringers are put on a retainer by a network which is separate from their footage pay (2 salaries).

 

PART II:

 

In journalism, a stringer is a freelance journalist or photographer who contributes reports or photos to a news organization on an ongoing basis but is paid individually for each piece of published or broadcast work.  Basically, you're your own boss and you set your own hours in this very lucrative field.

As freelancers, stringers do not receive a regular salary and the amount and type of work is typically voluntary. However, stringers often have an ongoing relationship with one or more news organizations, to which they provide content on particular topics or locations when the opportunities arise.

The term is typically confined to news industry jargon. In print or in broadcast terms, stringers are sometimes referred to as correspondents or contributors; at other times, they may not receive any public recognition for the work they have contributed.

A reporter or photographer can "string" for a news organization in a number of different capacities and with varying degrees of regularity, so that the relationship between the organization and the stringer is typically very loose. When it is difficult for a staff reporter or photographer to reach a location quickly for breaking news stories, larger news organizations often rely on local stringers to provide rapid scene descriptions, quotations or photos. In this capacity, stringers are used heavily by most television news organizations and some print publications for video footage, photos, and interviews.

NEW EBOOK! (THINK AND GROW RICH):

 

You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.

Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.

 

The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic). 

 

Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."

"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."

 

 

Book Review:

 

I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.

When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.

You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
