In Response To: Re: Alex Haley's Roots: A Novel or History? ()
I believe that parts of ROOTS is true.
I also read some where that Alex Haley was told to omit the information about his Native American ancesters for his book ROOTS and with the mini series. Is there any truth to that? And if so why?
If ROOTS isn't a true story then is his book QUEEN a fictional story too.
All in all, Haley was a gifted writer who pioneered the way for African Americazn genealogical research.
