Ras Tafari The Majesty & The Movement
This renowned exhibition held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia was devoted to the celebration, preservation and authentic interpretation of the contributions His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I and the Pan African movement have made in the 20th century and leading into this century. The main exhibition was housed at The Ethiopian National Museum from May 2014 – June 2014 with a satellite exhibit in Shashamane. Memorabilia, rare valuable items including His and Her Majesty’s personal garments and furniture, priceless paintings and ephemera were all on display.
The UK team for Ras Tafari The Majesty & The Movement, worked together to research, document, create and contribute thirteen Exhibition Panels to the National Museum of Ethiopia. The Ethiopian connections with the UK during the 20th century with a particular emphasis on His Imperial Majesty's residency at Fairfield House were captioned for the exhibition. In addition the emergence and successful rise of the Ras Tafari movement in the UK since the early 60's up to the present were captioned. Rastafari Houses and Mansions were all invited to contribute.
The UK component has been on display in the cities of Birmingham, Bath and London in Britain and at the Montego Bay Cultural Centre in Jamaica in 2016 followed by a successful three month display at the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, London under the new name RasTafari In Motion.
