Review Of Our Website Featured As Best Author Tribute Website By Very Best Sites
• Best Author Tribute Websites • "The mission of this website is to 'spread Alex Haley’s vision for all to know their heritage.' They quote Alex Haley - 'In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage—to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.'
"Alex Haley, author of Roots, was committed to making it possible for people to find out about their origins. This website aims to educate about Haley and to carry out his mission." ~ Douglas Adams, Very Best Sites.
