Roots: The Saga of an American Family
I don't know a single black family that didn't have a copy of Roots in their house. This isn't the cover I remember. It had a white sleeve with big brown texts. This is recommended reading for all Americans and anyone interested in American history. Not just the history that sings of freedom but ignores its huge history of chattle slavery. An economic practice that has far reaching psychological and economical effects. This is about American history, not just Black history.
