Adwa an Africa Victory Acadmic Confernace /Celebiration (Silver Spring)

February 7, 2014

Many of African dissident will be celebrating the Battle of Adwa in early March of this New Year. The celebration could be seen as the Ethiopian equivalent of the Fourth of July. Two courageous leaders, Emperor Menelik-II and the Empress Taytu, along with a courageous army of Ethiopian citizens, successfully repelled a well-armed Italian force on March 1, 1896. The mission of that force was to occupy and eventually colonize Ethiopia.

The Ethiopian Heritage Society of North America (EHSNA) will sponsor an Academic Conference (three Professors will present) and Commemorative event celebrating the victory at Adwa in Silver Spring, Maryland. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Emperor Menelik’s death, as well as the 118th anniversary of the Victory at Adwa. Because of that victory, Ethiopia is one of the few nations that did not fall prey to European colonization or exploitation.

EHSNA would be deeply honored if you attend this one of a kind event. Especially students highly recommend attending.

    In most parts of the US, African history is too restricted to the United States. African history spans the globe. The battle of Adwa is a prime example of that.
