BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Roger Kiser, a Brunswick, Ga. resident, describes himself as a survivor of the Dozier School for Boys.
"It has taken me 19 years to get anybody to believe the conditions there," he said.
Kiser was in the reform school in 1959, 1960 and 1961 and described the conditions as horrific.
"We saw many boys brought out of the white house, we know were dead, black and white, hauled out by wheelbarrow," said Kiser, "so we know there is bodies scattered all over the facility."
Kiser wrote the book the 'White House Boys - An American Tragedy' to reveal his experience.
"If you stepped off the sidewalk, you got beat, if you ate too much you got beat, if you smiled you got beat, if you smiled too much you got beat. It was total terror," he said.
A terror he tried to recreate in a film.
