Emperor Haile Selassie I, The Messiah To The Rastas, Died This Day 42-Years Ago; August 27, 1975.
We were talking about Haile Selassie just 35-days ago, i.e., on July 23, 2017, since that was the anniversary of his birthdate.
Today, August 27th is the anniversary of his death, in 1975. He was 83-years old. There had been a military coup in 11-months earlier. Haile Selassie had been imprisoned. He died while in prison and some believe, to this day, that he was assassinated. So, today spare a thought for a man who went by the title: His Imperial Majesty the King of Kings of Ethiopia, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God.
