Join us for a reading from the author of the ground-breaking biography of Haile Selassie, entitled King of Kings: The Triumph and Tragedy of Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. Written by his great-nephew Prince Asfa-Wossen Asserate, the impressive, dazzling and complex personality of Haile Selassie, King of Kings, is brilliantly conveyed in this biographical portrait. Haile Selassie was the messiah of the Jamaican Rastafarian movement. He was a reformer and an autocrat, whose rule was brought to a brutal and ignominious end when he was toppled and murdered by communist rebels.
