Last month researchers at the Univeristy of South Florida in Tampa used ground penetrating radars to uncover graves at Dozier Reform School Boy in Marianna, Florida. 

The largest gravesite is on the northside of the campus, where African-American boys were buried it is the site where the 31 graves are marked with white crosses, but researchers believe they  do not correspond with actural buried sites.

What happen to these black boys, why isn't that no one is saying anything about the girls? Was these boy murders, raped, where are their families, Are any of them still alive today.

One of the men who were one of the White House Boys put me in contact with Jerry Cooper, the president of WHB, who was once a ward of the Florida School for Boys will tell us what he know about the black boys and what happen to them. 

Please join host Antoinette Harrell and co-host Dr. Okpara Nosakhere for this upcoming discussion.
