Florida begin digging into its tragic past as anthropologists start unearthing what they believe are the remains of dozens of children buried on the grounds of a former reform school.

This past Saturday several black and white men who call themselves the " Black Boys at Dozier" and "The White House Boys" traveled to Marianna to be there in support of the dead boys who's remains were being exhumed. Both black and white men said they were beat, tortured and abused.

Johnny Lee Gaddy, 67, said he was locked up from 1957 to 1961 for truancy. He said he was severely beaten, but in his teens became a good farm worker, hoping to get released.

Please join host Antoinette Harrell and her special guests Richard Huntly, John Bonner, Johnny Lee Gaddy, and Arthur Huntley for this upcoming discussion.
