Human Rights Initiative Brings Ethiopian Royalty to UFLaw

Published: January 27th, 2003

Category: News Briefs

Members of the Ethiopian Royal family, including Crown Prince Zere Yacob Asfa Wossen (right, with attendent), visited last week to explore law school resources and interest in human rights issues. “The prince launched the Ethiopia Peace Foundation to promote repatriation for refugees, including many Ras Tafarins who aspire to return to Africa. The family also hopes to educate and make resources available for African descendants throughout the diaspora wishing to return,” said Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations Associate Director Desta Meghoo- Peddie (second from left, with Dean Jon Mills). “The UN World Conference Against Racism states descendants’ rights to return should be considered under the banner of a reparation effort,” she added. “I was asked to advise the Crown Prince on this initiative and research U.S. office locations.” The prince is the 227th direct descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. The family fled into exile in North America and Europe after a communist coup in 1974, and are supported in part by other royal families.
