Roots

The Saga of an American Family

Now a major BBC drama starring Forest Whitaker, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Laurence Fishburne
Tracing his ancestry through six generations - slaves and freedmen, farmers and blacksmiths, lawyers and architects - back to Africa, Alex Haley discovered a sixteen-year-old youth, Kunta Kinte. It was this young man, who had been torn from his homeland and in torment and anguish brought to the slave markets of the New World, who held the key to Haley's deep and distant past.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award
Rezension
"Haley succeeds beautifully where many have failed... The book is an act of love, and it is this which makes it haunting" James Baldwin New York Times
