Alex Haley said it and I believe it !!

“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.”

This quotation (above) came to my attention while watching Jeopardy. With the (over)emphasis on “Black Lives Matter” perhaps Alex Haley‘s book about Roots  may get censored like “Gone With the Wind” —and patriotic monuments. (I should keep my mouth shut?! Quotation is OK but opinion better left unsaid.)
