This one is a special one for us. James Roberts is the Great Uncle of Jeremy Fultz. He is a WWII vet and in part 1, we discuss growing up in the country, the draft, and going to war.
Also known as Ce Pvnkv Gray, and his wife, Bertha Gray. A wonderful video by Joe Sulphur.
Joe shared a story with us about Netche.
One time, traveling down the highway, Netche pointed to a road near Okmulgee and said, Over there is where 'ste lvstvke first came up with women wearing cans." Said around 1930's he credits freedmen at their stomp ground with coming up with the use of cans instead of turtles. It didn't catch on at first, but like all ladies, they just had to have a pair of cans. However, during certain ceremonies, women wearing locv with get head of the line privilege. No one ever thinks about where the use of cans came from but that was his opinion.
