Ethiopia - The Birthday Of Selam Tesfaye. Opening a restaurant on Addis has always been a dream for Berhane. For over 20 years, he worked in the customer service industry and owned several restaurants and establishments in the United States.
Born on the outskirts of Addis, he mainly grew up in the Midwest states Colorado and Arizona. It was there that he was first introduced and inspired by the life works of Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. King was an activist and a church minister who led the African American Civil Rights movement. He is known for nonviolent protest methods during the Civil Rights movement era like the 1965 Montgomery bus boycott and the 1963 March on Washington where he delivered his famous; “I Have a Dream Speech.”
According to Berhane, Martin Luther King Jr. was the “prince” of the civil rights movement. It was King’s dedication and fight for equality and justice for all Americans of all colors, that inspired him the most. And because of that, he was inspired to name his restaurant after the Civil Rights leader.
