Today it’s Emperor Haile Selassie I Birthday, born in 1892, become a central figure of Rastafari when Leonard P. Howell, aka the First Rasta but also the latest most persecuted men in the history of Jamaica, introduced him and commanded the people to “Forward to the King of Abyssinia to learn the worth of womanhood and manhood”. Any discussion of Rastafari that excludes Howell and the history of Jamaica are unreasonable and historically wrong. “No man is indispensable but some are irreplaceable”.
