Columbia Prof. Hanning exposed the work as not only fraudulant, but criminal, in that Alex Haley committed plagiarism by copying no less than 80 passages from a work of fiction entitled THE AFRICANS, written by Harold Courtlander. Haley paid $500,000 in fines and awards for his crime 29 years ago to the offended author and the publisher. Try to find any mantion of this in BLACK HISTORY MONTH. It will be right there with
the thousands of Negro slaveholders.
