"Roots: The Next Generations" Episode #1.4 (TV Episode 1979) Poster

(TV Mini-Series)




Bertha tells her parents that the baby is called "Alexander Murray Palmer Haley" and this was indeed the real Alex Haley's full name. The "Murray" is for his maternal grandmother's family and was in turn taken from the family to whom they belonged as slaves until the end of the Civil War. However in the original "Roots" the owners were called "Harvey" so this should have been one of the baby's names.
