Greetings Beautiful Brothers & Sisters,

Welcome to our 31st edition in our weekly series Friday Flashback To The Past! This week we are celebrating our fantastic lovely sister, Ms. Freda Payne! She is still as active on the music scene today as she was in the 60's when she started in the music business and in the 70's when she was at her peak on the music charts. This is a special request from General Emerald X, a longtime member of our organization who loves Sis. Payne's classic hit from the 70's "Band of Gold".

So for General Emerald X ... here's Ms. Freda Payne! And check out a little background on this great legendary black woman then get down to "Band of Gold"!

Freda Charcilia Payne
(born September 19, 1942)[1][2][3][nb 1] is an American singer and actress best known for her million selling, 1970 hit single, "Band of Gold". She was also an actress in musicals and film, as well as the host of a TV talk show.[4] Freda is the older sister of former Supreme Scherrie Payne.

Personal Life

Freda was formerly married to singer Gregory Abbott in 1976, and had a son, Gregory Abbott, Jr. (born 1978).[5] She also had a relationship with Edmund Sylvers (lead singer) of The Sylvers singing group). Edmund had written and produced her 1982 single 'In Motion'.[17]'.

Band of Gold

Ms. Freda Payne! What a beautiful sister even in her older years! We would like to thank our very own General Emerald X for putting in a bid for this week's Friday Flashback To The Past selection process. General Emerald X is a long time active member of The Black Fist, always working tirelessly behind the scenes for the liberation, salvation, and restoration of the black nation! And we here in this organization value the courageous efforts and actions of this beautiful sister when she has to hit the streets and get it on with "the man"!

Alright brothers and sisters that about does it for this week, we hope you join us back here next Friday for number 32 in our series.

As a final note: We would like to remind all of you beautiful brothers, sisters & supporters out there to check out our "special dedication" in the form of a Flashback to our little slain brother Trayvon Martin. On our home page type in the search bar: Tribute to Trayvon Martin
There you will see and hear a special video selection that we feel epitomizes the sentiments of the black nation at this moment in time and in times gone by in this nation called AmeriKKKa. It also epitomizes our feelings toward the brutal injustice and racial bullshit that still goes on in the year of our Lord 2012!

This was a great selection to have the Black fist readers of our brothers & sisters to view Ms. Freda Payne. This Woman was a great performer in the 70's, and is still glorious this day as a performer in the music industry. Bro.JT.
