Did She Mention Chicken George?

Dr. Tony Martin wrote a biography of Amy Ashwood Garvey, the first wife of Back-to-Africa proponent Marcus Garvey, in which he revealed her interest in genealogy.

"In 1946, she was able to trace her ancestry back to Asante in Ghana, similar to Alex Haley in Roots. The similarities to Haley are so great that if she had done it after Haley, I would have thought she plagiarised him," Martin said. [Link]
Hmm, I wonder if there could be a more logical explanation for the similarities...
