Recensioner i media

"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 * "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" * 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 *
