“The Wise Mind of H.I.M. Emperor Haile Sellassie I” and “Members of a New Race: The Teachings of H.I.M. Haile Sellassie I"
Release Date: 2018
Format: Paperback Book
Publisher: Frontline Books & Miguel Lorne Publishers
Genre: Philosophy & History
Two books of great value to all mankind, containing some of the best speeches laced with instructions, admonitions and historical truths. “The Wise Mind of H.I.M. Emperor Haile Sellassie I” and “Members of a New Race: The Teachings of H.I.M. Haile Sellassie I.” Two titles most recently republished by Frontline Books & Miguel Lorne Publishers. Both books are compilations of excerpts of speeches made by the Conquering Lion H.I.M. Haile Sellassie I over the years of his reign. Both books offer great advice and instruction to ones seeking to navigate through life in a modern and continually advancing world where common-objective morality and integrity are always challenged. We find that lots within the Rastafari community, both past and present, have drawn deep inspiration to better themselves and encourage others to better themselves from these speeches.

It will make us very sad if you do, and perhaps your removal will be the one the makes us decide this no longer worth doing at all, and all the information we provide will go away forever and musicians will sit home alone at night and cry because they have no one to play for because no one knows about their shows.
