Teddy Fikre, C.E.O. of Brown Condor Productions and Member of Ethiopian Americans for Change, is keeping busy these days. Teddy is planning The Brown Condor Launch Celebration which will take place on December 12th, at Jin Lounge in Washington, D.C.
Perhaps no other story represents the deep and rich history Ethiopians and African Americans share rather than the story of Brown Condor.
Brown Condor is the nickname given to Colonel John C. Robinson, born in 1903 in Carrabelle, Florida. When Ethiopia was invaded by Italy in 1935, Colonel Robinson volunteered his services to Haile Selassie. He flew reconnaissance flights and commanded the Ethiopian Air Force.
