“Africa will no longer be the “unknown continent”, for its human and material resources are beyond measure, and this great continent now stands on the verge of an economic, political and cultural development which, when realized, will be without parallel in history.”


- H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I, April 15, 1958
