monday, march 8, 1976 daily nebraskan page 5 Haley criticizes Bicentennial protest Black "denial of the Bicentennial celebration is "absoutely ridiculous. .". . We should be aware that there is progress," black author Alex Haley told an audience in the Nebraska Union Ballroom Friday night. "Only by acknowledging it can we expand on that progress," said Haley, co-author of The Autobiography of Malcolm X and author of Roots, to be published in October. "Obviously we have much, much more to do yet," he said. ' Haley, whose Roots will be televised in a 14-hour series by the American Broadcasting Co. early next year, said the book started as a spark of curiosity. He said his family was one of a few black ones which had an oral family history reaching back to an unknown place in Africa. His grandmother, Haley said, "pumped the story into me as if ifr were plasma." Haley's search for his ancestor Kinte who', as the story goes,, was captured by slave traders in Africa while chopping wood, led him to a Mandingo tribe in Gambia. There he learned from an Old African storyteller that an ancestor ot the tribe with a name similar to Kinte dis appeared after going for wood t.ie day centuries ago. Haley said he wept at the discovery. Roots, he said, is "the saga of a people, not just a family." His book, which took 12 years to complete, may "create a wave of black people going back to their grand mother ta trace their heritage," he said. But searches by other Blacks may be difficult, Haley said, because of the tearing apart of slave families and illegitimate children fathered by slave masters.
