First it was the 'Florida State Reform School' in 1900 then it the 'Florida Industrial School for Boys' and then it became the 'Florida School for Boys' and then it became the 'Dozier School For Boys'', but it was always 'Hell on Eath in Marianna Fl' where young boys, both white and black, were raped, beaten, murdered and thrown into unmarked graves or under buildings that were being constructed, especially in the 1930's and the 1940's when the KKK was lynching black men in the Town Square of Marianna Fl..
“Find A Grave” source indicates that there are supposed to be 65 bodies buried at the Florida Industrial School for Boys, the names are individually listed see link click here, this source indicates that 15 boys died between 1932 to 1936, 3 were White Boys and 12 were “Colored boys”, C/M indicates Colored Male.
Were There Two Cemetaries at the Dozier School for Boys, One For White Boys and One For Colored Boys, Influenced by the KKK in Marianna Fl? The argument for two locations is bolstered by the fact that it was not the custom in the days when the cemetery was active to bury whites and coloreds at the same site (The races were segregated at this facility). 31 metal crosses were erected at this location near extant shallow indentations in the ground in 1996 to replace concrete/rebar crosses from the 1960′s that had been removed and stored near the site…It is believed wooden crosses or no markers were originally employed…
It appears from the FDLE investigation and information obtained from School records that both white and “colored boys” were buried in the same cemetary, this does not ring true in the Deep South from 1919 to 1952, especially in Marianna Fl where an active KKK chapter was in operation up until the mid 1960′s. Get real here, the colored boys at Dozier Shool had a separate dinning hall and dorm from the white boys for over 50 some years, do you really think that they would have been ‘allowed’ to bury white boys and colored boys in the same cemetery while the folks in Marianna were hanging a black man from a tree in the town square, yeah right!
It is a matter of fact that young boys, both white and colored, were raped and tortured at the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna Fl, at least 65 ended up dead. During the time frame of 1932 to 1936 there were reported to be 12 young ’colored boys’ who died of “Pneumonia” at the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna Fl. On October 26th, 1934 the ‘colored man’ Claude Neal was brutally tortured and lynched in Marianna Fl by the KKK and his body was left hanging to a tree in the Marianna Town Square for 24 hours, so what really happened to those ‘colored boys’ at Dozier?
