Alex Haley

“Either you deal with what is the reality, or you can be sure that the reality is going to deal with you.”

— Alex Haley

Alex Haley is said to have “walked the walk and talked the talk.” Characterized by his slow, honeyed voice, he is one of America’s greatest oral and written storytellers.

As “the father of popular genealogy,” his timeless novel, Roots: The Saga of an American Family, illuminates and humanizes America’s era of slavery and ultimately reflects the personal mantra visible in all his work.
