Much like last show, you won't believe the subject matter of this one. The closest description that will make it easy to understand is Emmett Till meets Harriet Washington's "Medical Apartheid" in Abu Ghraib. Since 1900 the Florida School For Boys AKA Arthur G. Dozier School For Boys (AGDS) falsely and sometimes skillfully advertised itself as a reform school. In truth it was a combination concentration/torture/and death camp that managed to escape scrutiny and shutdown until just a couple years ago 2011.

One of Chris' two guest tonight are survivors of that ordeal; Johnny Lee Gaddy. He is joined by author/researcher/talk show host Antoinette Harrell. Together they will discuss a book they co-wrote; "Dark Days of Horror At Dozier: Rapes, Beatings, Murder and Slavery Unfold at Dozier School For Boys," by Harrell with Gaddy and two more contributors.
