A Visit from the Emperor: Examining Haile Selassie's United States Visit Through Cold War Politics

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Ethiopian and American nations embarked upon a journey that assisted in setting the moral and legal framework for the conduct of the nations of the world. America articulated a vision of anti-colonialism, collective security and international free trade; and Ethiopia lived the reality of being victor and victim of colonialism, a symbol of collective security and a beneficiary of international trade. By 1954, both nations had an established friendship and a bonding that transcended diplomatic considerations. They were bonded by the experiences of two world wars, the global black rights struggles (including pan-Africanism and the American Civil Rights Movement), and, the Cold War. This paper will examine the 1954 visit of Emperor Haile Selassie I and its ramifications through the lens of Cold War and Civil Rights history. How was the visit of a leader who advocated the use of integrity and morality to achieve economic and social freedom regarded in a nation that treated people of African descent as legally, economically, and socially inferior? How did the world community view the visit in the midst of the Cold War?
