Join us to learn about the basics of digital currencies, like Bitcoin, and how this technology for wealth creation, storing value, and making peer-to-peer payments without the intervention of banks or nation states holds enormous potential for Black communities and others.

Join us for a series of interactive discussions that will unfurl over the course of an afternoon as we delve into the specific experiences of Blackness in Hawai‘i. Facilitated by thinkers and activists from our community, Darker than Blue discussions will engage everyone to consider what Black community looks like on this land and what our shared dream for it can be.
Together, we'll address topics that shape our lives here, from questioning who is 'really' Black in Hawai‘i, figuring out how it is possible to be simultaneously Black and Local, considering cultural appropriation and anti-Blackness in Local culture, and talking through the complicated situation of Black people in the military, as well as militarism and independence.
While all Black August Honolulu events are intentionally Black-centered spaces, we ask that Darker than Blue be an all-Black space for the afternoon.
Documentary Whose Streets? examines how the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9, 2014, his dehumanization in media, and vilification by police inspired his community in Ferguson, Missouri to fight back against violent police repression, drawing global attention to the movement for justice for Black people in the United States and around the world. Join queer Black grassroots activist Brittany Ferrell, featured in the film, for a screening and discussion of this moving film.
Community discussion moderated by Prentis Hemphill.
Tickets available here.
Join us for an action zine making workshop that connects Black liberation and the movements to Free the Land with Hawaiian sovereignty and Aloha ‘Āina.

Led by artist and activist Joy Enomoto
