In its lengthy & troubled history, over 80 young men died at the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Florida. Many of them were buried on the school grounds, but it’s not known exactly where. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 looks at how a team of USF researchers is now surveying the site to find the answers and give the boys’ family members the closure that has escaped them for so long.
