Roots conclusion with Alex Haley
Roots ends with Alex Haley walking down a country road describing how, in 1921, the Haley’s welcomed a seventh generation descendent of Kunta Kinte. “That boy was me, Alex Haley, and I never forgot those stories which my Grandmother Cynthia had told me,” Haley says. “I became obsessed with a desire to know more about our family, more about its history. It was a search that would take me finally twelve years to complete. And those things that I learned I wrote in a book called, Roots.”
