Julianna Farrait: Mrs. Frank Lucas

Frank Lucas, his wife Julianna, and daughter Francine. In the 2007 movie American Gangster, we were made to believe his wife had nothing to do with the business. Actually, she served 5 years in prison after being arrested in 1975, for her role in Lucas’ heroin operation and arrested May 19, 2010 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, after she allegedly sold 2 kilos of cocaine to an informant and stating she had additional 8 kilos to be unloaded.

Frank Lucas’ home was located at 933 Sheffield Road in Teaneck, New Jersey. This modest home looks nothing like the huge mansion that appeared in the 2007 film American Gangster. Hollywood takes

liberty with the truth as usual.

darcelglowingA compelling story of love, dreams, hopes, religion, betrayal, abuse, living on the edge and her incredible comeback.”

Beauty, talent, star of hit TV show “Solid Gold” and   married to a legendary Temptation. Darcel danced her  way  into our homes every Saturday afternoon for four  seasons  between 1980 and 1986. We idolized her, we  tried to move  like her and groove like her. She made sexy  look easy,  wonderful, fabulous…but behind that shining  star  everything that glittered wasn’t solid gold.

“…when I pulled into the subterranean parking  structure of  my house and got out of the car, one guy  grabbed me  around my neck, held a knife to my throat and  demanded  my wallet…”

“Darcel Solid  Gold”  written by Darcel with Dr. Claiborne

As dynamic, powerful and captivating as she was on  screen  this is her real life story.

Mark Clark: Happy Birthday!


Mark Clark (June 28, 1947 – December 4, 1969) was a member of the Black Panther Party. He was killed with Fred Hampton during a Chicago police raid on December 4, 1969.

Mark Clark was born on June 28, 1947, in Peoria, Illinois, to Elder William Clark and Fannie Bardley Clark. He became active in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) at an early age and joined in demonstrating against discrimination in employment, housing and education. According to John Gwynn, former President of state and local chapters of the NAACP, Mark Clark and his brothers played a vigorous role in helping keep other teenagers in line.

“He could call for order when older persons or adults could not,” he said of Clark in a December 1969 interview with the Chicago Tribune.[2] In that same Chicago Tribune article, family members are quoted as saying Mark Clark enjoyed reading and art and was good at drawing portraits. He attended Manual High School and Illinois Central Junior College in Peoria.

After reading their literature and the Ten Point Program, Clark joined the Black Panther Party and later decided to organize a local Peoria, Illinois chapter. He went from church to church in an effort to find a building to house a free breakfast program. He was eventually successful when Pastor Blaine Ramsey agreed to allow a free breakfast program. Church members later voted against continuing the breakfast program because of concerns of government monitoring of the Black Panther Party.

Some family members and friends say Mark Clark knew he would be murdered in Chicago.[2] In the pre-dawn hours of December 4, 1969, Chicago Police stormed into the apartment of BPP State Chairman Fred Hampton at 2337 W. Monroe Street, killing both Mark Clark and Fred Hampton, and causing serious bodily harm to Verlina Brewer, Ronald Satchel, Blair Anderson and Brenda Harris.

Fred Hampton and Deborah Johnson, who was eight-and-a-half months pregnant with their child, were sleeping in the south bedroom. Ronald “Doc” Satchel, Blair Anderson and Verlina Brewer were asleep in the north bedroom.

Brenda Harris was sleeping on a bed by the south wall of the living room, and Harold Bell slept on a mattress on the floor in the middle of the room. Louis Truelock was also lying on the bed with Harris. Mark Clark was asleep in a chair in the living room. The first shot hit Mark Clark in the heart.

Clark’s gun went off as he fell, according to Brenda Harris, who watched from the bed in the corner. A federal grand jury determined that the police fired between 82 and 99 shots while most of the occupants lay sleeping. Only one shot was proven to have come from a Panther gun.[
