Florida's Dozier School For Boys: A True Horror Story
Just heard this on NPR...
"Over the past decade, hundreds of men have come forward to tell gruesome stories of abuse and terrible beatings they suffered at Florida's Dozier School for Boys, a notorious, state-run institution that closed last year after more than a century.
Known as the "White House Boys," these 300-some men were sent as boys to the reform school in the small panhandle town of Mariana in the 1950s and 1960s. They have joined together over the years to tell their stories of the violence administered in a small building on the school's grounds they knew as the White House.
Some 81 boys are known to have died there, but where their remains are buried is a mystery that researchers are now trying to solve."
