Racism and bias are systemic issues in American society. We’ve seen demonstrations around the world following the death of George Floyd, one of many Americans unjustly killed or persecuted because of the color of their skin. Are the current unrest in America and global protests in support of Black Lives Matter signs that the arc of the moral universe is bending towards justice and equality? How does racism manifest itself in Hawaii and the Pacific and how do we combat it?

The King Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center invites you to join as Dr. Akiemi Glenn, Executive Director of the Popolo Project, retired Judge Sandra Simms representing the African American Lawyers Association of Hawaii, and Education Director Keahe Davis talk candidly about the context, history, and experience of implicit and explicit bias in America, Hawaii, and the Pacific.

Visit the Judiciary History Center’s YouTube channel to view the program’s live stream feed on July 9, 2020, at 6 pm. The webinar will be recorded and posted to their YouTube and Facebook pages.
