The Story of T. B. Sipuel

Telling Big Mama's Story.....

This is something I want me and my brothers and cousins to do... in a book style.

I searched the newspaper film in the OK History Center several months ago.   I found these words in a White- Daily Oklahoman Newspaper rendering this story  (dated September  1946).


"A heart attack was fatal for the Reverend Sipuel, prominent negro leader of the city last week in Oklahoma City.  He went to a garage in the city to have his car fixed which had been in a wreck.  When the garage man said it would cost $400 to repair the car he slumped with a heart attack from which he never recovered."

Such a lie to be posted by the media!
