This paper examines the book "Roots" about the journey from freedom to slavery to freedom of a man called Kunta Kinte. It discusses how Kinte represents the unlimited potential of every black man and truly, of all men in their free will and freedom.

From the Paper:

"'Roots' is the story of Alex Haley's lineage. There have been two lawsuits filed against this book claiming falsities of various types. One was settled for six hundred fifty thousand dollars and one was beaten in court. In all, it does not matter whether or not Mr. Haley's story is exactly true to life because it is an example of the oral tradition which uses truth relatively to make it's points and transfer its ideals to the reader or actually, listener."
