If you are touring West Tennessee, be sure to stop in the small town of Henning to visit the Alex Haley House Museum. Haley spent many summers at the house in Henning with his grandparents and it has been restored to its original state. Best of all is the museum behind the house; it gives a great deal of information about not only Haley but also the origins and backgrounds of his relatives dating back to slave days. There are programs held here on certain dates as well. The museum gives great insight into some of the local black history of boy Haley's family and others. Although I have lived near here all my life, I had never visited until recently where I attended a very informative discussion on the black perspective.
