An historical narrative of slavery in the American South. Based upon actual researches conducted over a period of years, Haley reconstructs the events that led to the enslavement of Kunte Kinte, the "African" identified in Haley's family lore as their founding father, and his settlement on American shores. Kinte, in his own history, becomes an allegory of the history of the millions of Africans brought forcibly to America, and of the people they became in the intervening years.

(Key Words: Genealogy, Heritage, History, African Americans, Blacks, Negros, Roots, Family, Slavery, Alex Haley, Kunte Kinte).
