In one section, Alex Haley describes his feelings on meeting Waller Wiser, the descendent of the man who purchased Kunta Kinte:
"There can never, never be any true integration so long as one relegated to inferior, and another to superior. . . In practical terms, then, the message for us here we sit, symbolizing white and black in our country. . . incarnate the hope, the promise, the challenge, the potential of this country. . .History, however hideous, is history. None can change. We can change, now, its legacy."
The collection consists of outlines, manuscript drafts, notes, newspaper clippings, and more!
