Ethiopian-Americans grateful on 50th Anniversary of March on Washington

HIMThe 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington is an important occasion for all those fighting for freedom.  Ethiopian-Americans have been among the beneficiaries of the struggles waged by Dr. King and the civil rights movement.

The ebony kinship that binds Ethiopian-Americans and African-Americans have deep roots.  His Imperial Majesty Haile Sellassie I was among the first African leaders to lay a wreath on Dr. King’s grave.

“I found it quite necessary to lay a wreath on Dr. King’s grave so that we may remember his deeds and contributions to history, and his triumphs – and to honor his father and his wife.” the Emperor said.
