My Tribute to Haile Selassie

This is my tribute to the Ethiopian Emperor H.I.M. Haile Selassie (23 July 1892 – 27 August 1975). The Rastafari Movement perceives him as a messianic figure that will lead the peoples of Africa and the African diaspora to freedom. His traditional lineage is thought to be from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.
