55 bodies were found at the infamous Dozier Reform School in Marianna, Florida. Cadaver dogs were used to help locate the bodies. Several men like Johnny Lee Gaddy tells of stories of abuse that he suffered at the state-run school.
Johhny Gaddy was 11 years old in 1957 when he says police picked him up in Dade City and sent him to Dozier. He says guards would send dogs after boys who tried to run away, and he never saw several of them again. What’s more, he was counseled not to talk about what he saw…
“And when I was taking the garbage to the pit, and I told the guy, ‘That looks just like a boy’s hand right there, ” says Gaddy. ” He said, ‘Johhny, don’t ever say that again. If you don’t want to be like that, don’t ever say that again.’ So, everything that we seen and heard, we just had to not see it and not hear it.”
Please host Antoinette Harrell and her guest Johnny Lee Gaddy as they discuss this topic,
Several black men traveled over 300 miles to Marianna, Florida for the first time in over forty-years to bring closure to the childhood memories that still haunted them. They were beaten and abused as boys at Dozier Reform School.
As they walked the ground on the black side they were haunted by the childhood memories. They looked around the campus with tears in their eyes as those memories came flooding back.
"When I look at these cottages, when I look at the kitchen, all these memories come back, " said Huntley. "My feet come back, when I got my toe cut off, comes back."
John Bonner, Johnny Gaddy and Arthur Huntley was among the black men who traveled back to Marianna, Florida to hold a candlelight vigil for the dead boys.
"It makes me feel good to come back here and do this for them," said Arthur Huntley President of the Black Boys at Dozier Reform School. "It gives me deep satisfaction to be here today."
Several of the White House Boys join in for the candlelight vigil. Micheal Sapp and Andrew Puel offered up a special prayer for deceased boys.

Although they were segregated at Dozier Reform School in Marianna, Florida, they all shared some of the same horrible experiences as little boys at Dozier. The white boys could not go on the black side and the black boys could not go on the white side.
Both black and white boys were beat and whipped in a building call the White House. They all can recall moments in the White House that they wish they could forget.
Please join host Antoinette Harrell and Professor Clare Washington of Portland State University for an interview with these men.

The one thing that will awaken a man, as the one I’m writing about, is pain. Through my heartache, I found my passion and purpose to push others forward.
The moment I laid down my will and selfish desires. I gained my life back.
Be EPIC and know I don’t regret not one pain sent out. That pain, along with my own pain, has helped thousands. If I’ve pushed one, I’ve pushed a million. Stay encouraged

Surrounding yourself with like-minded people may be comforting, it might even seem like a good idea, but it’s not the stuff of great leadership. The best leaders are not only capable of effectively leading those who hold differing opinions and perspectives – they thrive on it.

J.L. says it's difficult for a woman to spot a man who's living on the D.L. "Women who are married, women who are comfortable, women who don't believe that this could happen to them need to take another look at what's going on in their house," J.L. says.
He also says a woman can't compete with a man's desires if he has feelings for other men. If a woman discovers that her husband is sleeping with another man, there is nothing she can do to stop his desire for men.
Where do men like J.L. meet potential sexual partners? Not at gay bars or nightclubs, he says. "If I'm going to pick up a brother, I'm going to where [a single woman] is going tonight," J.L. says. One place he says he goes to find a male partner is the black church.
If you haven’t had contact in months with a friend who suddenly went mute, chances are, you’ve become an afterthought. We remain stuck when we continue to speak on/of a person who has vanished from our lives.

One of my fondest memories with my father was standing on a beach in Jamaica a week before I was getting married. He and I witnessed a Jamaican headed out into the water with a spear in hand to catch fresh fish.
I can still hear my dad say, “Watch this son!” I replied, “Here you go with this wildlife stuff, mannn.” As we’re standing there drinking a Red Stripe, an hour later the patient native returned from the water with fish in hand.
My dad was very excited as the guy placed the fish onto the hot grill. At that point, I knew my dad had set this entire moment up.
He and I shared fresh grilled fish from the sea with the head of the fish still attached.
The moral of the story: Big Wheel taught me that I should go out and get that fish no matter how far out it may appear. Be EPIC and know when we acquire patience in life, everything we desire will appear.
