In the late 1940s, Leonard Howell, a Caribbean religious leader, was jailed for passport fraud. He cheated thousands by making them pay for what he claimed to be a valid passport to enter Africa. What had he been selling? Photographs of Haile Selassie.

["Haile Selassie" means "Emissary of the Holy Trinity."]
