It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

When Alex was a boy growing up in Tennessee, his grandmother used to tell him stories about their family, stories that went way back to a man she called "the African" who was taken aboard a slave ship bound for Colonial America. As an adult, Alex spent twelve years searching for documentation that might authenticate what his grandmother had told him. In an astonishing feat of genealogical detective work, he discovered the name of "the African"??Kunta Kinte??as well as the exact location of the village in West Africa from where he was abducted in 1767. Roots is based on the facts of his ancestry, and the six generations of people??slaves and freemen, farmers and lawyers, an architect, a teacher??and one acclaimed author??who descended from Ku… (més)

I absolutley loved this book. I loved it so much that I have not been able to watch the tv movie because they changed so much of the story for tv. I was also devestated when I found up that Alex Haley actually made up most of the story. ( )

Powerful and terrifying reanactment of Slavery - capture, toubobs, Black slavers, Middle Passage, auction, escapes, massa, family, rape, and movement toward freedom -

Kunta Kinte stays silent and learns to survive in dignity, even forgiving those around him, from his shaklemate to his wife and child, for not worshiping Allah.

For years, he often turns to friends on the plantation, yet is often so beset by self pity, hatred, and guilt that he develops no trade and mentally berates all the
Blacks for not knowing or caring about their African heritage. Had he spent more time carving wood than blaming, he might have been happier.

Without Kunta Kinte, the tale folds. Chicken George and his cruelty to roosters is unbearable to read.

Story picks up again when Alex Haley hits his stride with new found research friends, journey to Africa, and encountering the impressive griot! ( )

An eye-opening read. All those details about the horrors of enslavement and its aftermath in America. ( )

It wasn't planned that Roots' researching and writing finally would take twelve years. Just by chance it is being published in the Bicentennial Year of the United States. So I dedicate Roots as a birthday offering to my country within which most of Roots happened.

Early in the spring of 1750, in the village of Juffure, four days upriver from the coast of The Gambia, West Africa, a manchild was born to Omoro and Binta Kinte.
