DCF Dozier School in Marianna Survivors

Four men who survived beatings at The Florida School for Boys in Marianna are calling on state and federal officials to investigate. The men attended the segregated school in the 1950s.

They say teachers and councilors at the school killed black students.

Survivor Roger Kiser says he expected kids were being killed, but was too afraid to tell anybody.

“If you had the slightest frown on your face of even said the slightest word out of context, it could cause you to be sent to the White House and be viciously beaten to the point where you would become unconscious and bleed profusely down your legs and back.”

The men decided to call for the investigation after 32 people were found buried near the school in unmarked graves.
