  • This is a place that has tangible energy. Its a place of meditation, deep history, character, and beauty. I went for business, but I want to go back to take it all in and meditate without distraction.  more »

  • Visiting Alex Haley's house was a remarkable experience that brings Alex Haley's entire novel and other autobiographies to life. I visited all the places he mentioned in Roots one year. The next year, I visited all the locations in Alex Haley's autobiography on Malcolm X. Then I took a box of Haley's books to Prague, Czech, to share with my teachers and students at the Academy of Economics where I taught. My boy is eight years old now, and scared of the violence on the TV show Roots, but when my son is old enough, I will make sure he travels to Alex Haley's Museum after reading Roots with him so that he can learn the untold history that surrounds us. The museum near Memphis, the house, the ranch where Chicken George raised his chickens, the Tennessee heat and humidity between Memphis as well as Mississippi all the way south to New Orleans brings the stories to life in the same way that visiting the Holy Lands brings religious books to reality for the reader traveling to Israel. I will continue to promote Alex Haley's books by shipping boxes with me to Europe when I travel. Thomas Chee, Publisher
