The battle of Adwa is the greatest military victory by an African leader over a white army since the days of Hannibal. It was, in the words of Merid Wolde Aregay and Sven Rubenson, 'the last dramatic act in a long play.' culminating in a resounding victory for Ethiopia which enshrined its place in history as a source of defiance and freedom. Ethiopianism, OAU/AU, the Ras Teferian movement and of course the Pan-African flag are all inexorably linked to the victory Emperor Menelik scored at Adwa. Last but not least, yes, Emmye Menelik has saved the likes of Sebhat Nega and Legesse Zenawi and other dedebit midgets and deadbeats from being shoe shine boys and maids for the Italians.
