Every year since 1947, Rastafarians in Jamaica and around the world celebrate the birthday of Haile Selassie I Emperor of Ethiopia. Born in 1892, he is best remembered for a speech delivered to the League of Nations during the brutal Italian invasion of the 1930’s; the words appear in Bob Marley’s famous song “War.”
