The author of The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead, brilliantly dramatizes another part of American history through the story of two boys sentenced to hellish reform in Florida in the 1960s.

Elwood Curtis took to heart the words of Dr. Martin Luther King: he is as good as anyone. Abandoned by his parents, and raised by his loving, strict, and insightful grandmother, Elwood is about to enroll in a local black college. But given the time and place, one innocent mistake is enough to ruin his future, and so Elwood arrives at The Nickel Academy, which claims to provide “physical, intellectual and moral training” that will prepare its prisoners to become “honest and fair” men. ”

In fact, the Nickel Academy is a horror room, where physical, emotional, and sexual violence is widespread, where corrupt officials and traders trade quickly for school supplies, and where any boy who resists is likely to disappear. ‘ Stunned to find himself in this vicious environment, Elwood tries to hold back Dr. King’s ringing statement: “Throw us in jail and we will still love you.” But Eloud’s co-founder and new friend Turner thinks Elwood is naive. and worse; the world is crooked and the only way to survive is to imitate the cruelty and cynicism of their oppressors.

The tension between Elwood’s idealism and Turner’s skepticism leads to a decision that will have decades of consequences.

Based on the history of a true Reformed school in Florida, which operated for one hundred and eleven years and distorted and destroyed the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven story by a great American writer whose work is essential to understanding the current reality of the United States.
