Reviews

Praise for Roots

"The book is an act of love, and it is this which makes it haunting."--New York Times

"A gripping mixture of urban confessional and political manifesto, it not only inspired a generation of black activists, but drove home the bitter realities of racism to a mainstream white liberal audience."--Observer

"Groundbreaking"--The Associated Press

"A Pulitzer Prize-winning story about the family ancestry of author Alex Haley...[and] a symbolic chronicle of the odyssey of African Americans from the continent of Africa to a land not of their choosing."--Washington Post

Philadelphia Tribune, 6/7/16
"[A] landmark book."--Marian Wright Edelman
