As a Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Campus Center and a campus committed to becoming a Native Hawaiian Place of Learning, we intentionally pause each year on January 17th to mark the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom. During this time, we also honor the National Day of Racial Healing and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. With all this to guide us, let’s collectively explore what it has meant, continues to mean, and could mean in the future to experience Hawai‘i as our home aloha, our beloved home.
We do this by engaging in the following questions:
What has made it both beautiful as well as challenging to call Hawai‘i home:
What can the lessons from these experiences mean for the Hawai‘i we want to shape as home for our children and grandchildren?
We will pause and engage together January 16-18, 2024 by sharing stories, listening deeply, creating art, making connections, building relationships, and sharing meals together.
Our pause is inspired and shaped by the following quotes:
“Never cease to act because you fear you may fail.” – Queen Liliʻuokalani
“…the end is the creation of the beloved community. It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opposers into friends. It is this type of understanding goodwill that will transform the deep gloom of the old age into the exuberant gladness of the new age. It is this love which will bring about miracles in the hearts of men.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
