Re: Alex Haley's Roots: A Novel or History?
In Response To: Re: Alex Haley's Roots: A Novel or History? ()
I agree as genealogists, we must adhere to facts and documentation. Haley made some serious misjudgements and his credibility was called into question. I, for one, am in debt to him for it was Roots that spawned the desire in African Americans to research their family histories. There is something nagging me, however. What was the real motive for the Mills' going to such an extent to prove Haley as a "farce?" I cannot help but wonder that.
