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

Hi, Miss Dera. I truly don't remember any promotion of Alex Haley's production as non-fiction. Maybe I missed that part of events that leads to current discussions of whether or not Alex Haley 'made up' characters and events in his epic.

I had always viewed 'Roots' as a fictional account of a dedicated view of the slavery trade and its aftermath. My question is, was 'Roots' marketed as fiction or non-fiction? My second question is, did the designation of the work change genre at any time? Thanks.
