Re: Alex Haley's Roots: A Novel or History?

My take is that we can't sincerely know whether Alex Haley made it all up or did his very best to represent the truth as he knew it. I personally think that in the United States of Haley's time, it was more likely than not that Haley was telling the truth. Can anyone really give evidence on this forum that Kunta Kinte did NOT exist? I think not and I believe therefore the argument is rather futile. Slavery existed. African people were brought to America as slaves, much in the same way as Alex Haley describes it. Alex Haley tried to explain his family origins. That's how I view all this.
