“In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.”
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

“Racism is taught in our society... it is not automatic.
It is learned behavior toward persons with
dissimilar physical characteristics.”
Alex Haley
