November’s Sunday Night Live! will preview Ann Walker-King’s documentary entitled TAFT then we will learn more about Walker-King and how her passion for justice led her to create this documentary. For over a century, the State of Tennessee sent “wayward colored boys” and, later, white boys as well, to a “reform” school, TAFT Juvenile Detention Center, in a remote area of Appalachia. An investigation of Taft by Ann Walker-King led her to produce this documentary. It exposes, in their own words, the torture, trauma, and lasting damage to those boys, now middle-aged men who had been sent to Taft.
