Emperor Haile Selassie I, Revered By Rastas, Was Born This Day 125-Years Ago; July 23, 1892.

To be honest I really don’t know much about him. Yes, growing up in Britain in the last 1960s & early 1970s his name would come up as a ‘figure of importance‘ much like Nelson Mandela who was in prison at the time. I know that he was controversial in the later part of his life. But, then again Rastas revere him and even think that he may be divine. So, it would be wrong and churlish not to mark this birth anniversary — especially since it is the 125th.
