When Haile Selassie visited The United States he did so to the welcome of literally thousands of excited spectators. He was greeted in the streets and the focal point of a Parade through The Big Apple.

Many people do not understand that the President John F Kennedy had known Haile Selassie from the time he was a small boy. The Kennedy family told stories about how little John and his brother Robert had often sat on Haile Selassie’s lap as children. In one story told by Rose Kennedy a favorite toy of John’s was one that had been given to him as a gift by Haile Selassie….. This is a great video detailing Haile Selassie’s visit to the United States in 1964
