Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Dozier School: Report reveals 19 unmarked graves found at Florida boys' reform school

Scientists have found evidence of 98 deaths and more graves than they previously thought at a Florida boys' reform school, where students were allegedly brutally beaten, raped and murdered.
Researchers from the University of South Florida in Tampa found at least 50 grave shafts at the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Florida - 19 more than had been identified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in a 2010 investigation.
In total, scientists believe a minimum of 96 children - aged from six to 18 - and two adults died between 1911 and the 1973 at the infamous school, with many of the burials going undocumented.
And there could be even more victims: Researchers do not have access to records after 1960 because of privacy laws, and overgrowth on the grounds has hindered them from full searches.   | Mail Online
