Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities Presents a TALK Program About Land Use and the H-3 Freeway

HONOLULU—The public is invited to join the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities (HCH) for a TALK program focused on the newly released Ē Luku Wale Ē, Devastation Upon Devastation, a photography book by Piliāmo‘o about the Hawai‘i Interstate H-3 Freeway project, on Sunday, February 21, 2016 at Windward Community College, Hale ‘Ᾱkoakoa 101-105, from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

This TALK program brings together Piliāmo‘o, a collaborative name for photographers Mark Hamasaki and Kapulani Landgraf, and other contributors who worked on the book to share their unique perspectives on the history and construction of the H-3 Freeway, one of Hawai‘i’s largest and most extensive public works projects of its time.

HCH Director of Grants and Special Projects Stacy Hoshino will moderate the discussion, and audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions to the speakers after the session.

This is the first of a series of free TALK programs to be held around the state to discuss issues related to community history, development and environmental ethics, using examples from the past to stimulate conversations about what we have learned from its stories.

Event is free and open to all. Books will be available for purchase and signing. For more information, visit http://hihumanities.org/talk-elukuwalee/.
