Tiponi Grey, 1968-2018, a woman who told off Scientology for its lack of compassion - 2018-12-12
We were stunned too. We wrote about Tiponi in 2016, when she very publicly announced that she had quit her job working for the Church of Scientology, and we enjoyed seeing her on the episode, which we got to see a few days early. But we didn't see the tribute to her on the screener we viewed, and we're embarrassed to say that we were unaware that Tiponi died in early November.
The episode focused on Scientology's bizarre relationship with the Nation of Islam, and it featured two former NOI members, Ishmael Bey and Hector Falu-Muhammad. But Remini also wanted to talk about Scientology's attempt to reach the black community with its Inglewood "Ideal Org," and so she also invited Tiponi on the program to talk about her experiences there.
