Dakota Midday: Reverend Spencer Turnipseed


Reverend Specner Turnipseed grew up in the segregated American South. He was the son of a white clergyman who spoke out regarding issues of civil rights and social justice. The entire family was intimidated and harassed.

Turnipseed went on to find his own voice in the movement. He visited Sioux Falls to talk about guilt, courage, compassion, and the imprint of one of the most tumultuous times in American history.
