ExquisitequotRootsquot Photo Roots was a book and a television miniseries first broadcast in 1977. The mini-series had a sequel in 1979 due to its immense popularity.

This quiz asks the most basic questions about the television series. The miniseries was based on the book, "Roots: The Saga of an American Family".

The author was the son of a WWI decorated soldier who served as a professor at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where he raised his family. Alex dropped out of school and had a 20 year term in the Coast Guard.

The series describes a man captured in 1767. This family patriarch in the United States was the initial subject of an oral history that was passed down from generation to generation by the female family members. The author's elderly grandmother was emancipated in 1865 and was able to continue to pass on the family lore.

You should be able to recall all of the facts that this quiz asks about and re-enjoy the catharses you had in the seventies.

I have to rent this mini series, as this quiz has me gripped. It appears to be a series that one would find it hard to pause. Thank goodness I still have a VHS, as I believe that is how it would be rentable. Exellent quiz. I hope the mini series is as good as the quiz suggests. Thank you for bring it to my attention.
