Emperor Halie Salleassie I autobiograpy (volume 1)
on 7 February 2011
I found this book amazing. It's funny but I came in contact with this book through searching about the rastafarian movement. whilst I heard of the man Emperor Halie Sallassie I, I never sort to find out about him. Watching his coronation did that. Whilst I had to get my head around the names, (although some of them are familiar in my own family) it has inspired me to further seacrh not only about the man but how his influence and wisdom (his ethos on life dvelopement and progression) has influenced the world. This in event has led me to look at other books that are revealing more than what I thought I was trying to understand.
For me this book has linked me to an historical time with its biblical reference that I can identify with that has given an even greater prospective on questions of social liberation(I totally get it). (I know for me, its hard enough being a women, mother and black, I can not imagen what it might be to have the lives of a nation / country in your hand) His greatness as a black king is significant and undoubtable.
I have been nothing but enthused from the moment I opened this book which subsequently has led me on to open other books and footage.
I would never describe this book as a good read, I would say it's amazing.
