Forensic anthropologist Erin Kimmerle recounts the excavation of unmarked graves at the Dozier School for Boys in Florida. Kimmerle and her team uncovered more than 50 unmarked graves at the reform school, where boys often reported sexual assault, beatings, and disappearances. History should not be forgotten, and Kimmerle shows that Florida still has a long way to go on the path of justice and reconciliation. An excellent companion to Colson Whitehead’s The Nickel Boys.
