Our Awards

There are many websites which we think should be recognized for their contribution to the legacy of Haile Sellassie. So, we would like to offer our award to them. Our first winners are in the first issue of H.S. Web Newsletter'98 HIM Award

Our criteria is simple: the site has to have cultural, educational, historical contributions to the memory of Haile Sellassie. The site doesn't have to be dedicated to H.I.M. but to the cause he dedicated his life: Progress for Africa, Progress for developing nations, Education of People about the World of the ancient cultures, bringing together the new and traditions. Ethiopia is the old crossroad of races and religions and Haile Sellassie saw himself as a man who belongs to the world without color or ethnic lines.

The biggest news of May'98 was the war. If you want to understand the roots of Eritrean conflict, check the page on the current situation -- Politics and the summary page Ethiopia After Haile Sellassie
Eritrean problem could be traced further back in time -- colonial period after the Adwa (1896), or, perhaps, even further -- The North of Abyssinia, the Classical Ethiopia.... (see Dr. Zewde Gabre-Sellassie's article on Menelik and Adwa, first Ethiopian military encounter with Italy). Ethiopian Embassy webpage (bellow) has daily updates of the conflict. Also, the new Addis Tribune on new site EthiopiaOnline
We have a new directory Politics on our new server You're welcome to contribute your thoughts, articles and opinions.

If you are familiar with our site and projects, you know that we planned to have a small monument to be placed in Addis Ababa next summer. It doesn't look as if it will be possible. Perhaps Jamaica could be the first place to do it, where people remember and appreaciate Haile Sellassie's name. If you would like to help to do it next summer, please contact us. For more on this project go to the H.S. Foundation Page. Thank you.

There are many websites with information on Ethiopia. Go there and see for yourself. The idea of this reference page is to collect the links and sources for people with the similar interest. The Internet is too big to swim alone. We opened new pages for this very reason: Africa Page, Africa II and Black Page, The Race
