I could never forget this scene from Alex Haley's TV series #Roots ever in my life. Seeing it again via @black.fictional.characters brought back memories. When it aired in Nigeria back in the day, I was fascinated by the whole story and intrigued with the resilience and magic of the people that look like me. Of course, their suffering was not lost on me either. I had many questions at that young age. When I laid my hands on the book after secondary school, I read it as fast as I could...
This is really random. Just bear with me and my musings. By the way, I think Alex Haley was 13th generation descendant of Kizzy? Kizzy was definitely sold and raped etc. 😭Not quite sure anymore... 🤔 #deletingsoon #history
