Haley's widow sells "Roots" for a song
Given the impact that "Roots" has had on the lives of so many people of color, I'm deeply disturbed that his wife was not able to reap enough royalty fees to avoid bankruptcy. I'm even more disturbed that she apparently had no one to go to for help before she was reduced to this. Revs. Jackson & Sharpton are so lathered up about a movie: where were they when a survivor of one of our icons needed help?
