Summary
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY DAVID OLUSOGA. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award 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.
