i just finnished reading my new favorite book, "Roots" by Alex Haley (as seen on the left on the set of the film based on the book) the reasons why i liked it is because i also detested it. the historical refrences were very accurate and the treatment of slaves was brutal. the hardships of the family were disgusting. I liked it because Haley had the chance to research his ansestors based on an oral history passed down seven generations to keep his ansestors' memories alive. this kind of family unity and respect has gained my upmost admiration. i want to do the same for my family. my heart is turned.
