Destination was Paris France, made a left turn arrived in Hawai'i 1973 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with two children. Founded the African American Diversity Cultural Center Hawai'i, a repository to collect, archive and preserved the history of Black people who came to the Hawaiian Islands from around the world over two hundred years ago.

Background Information

As a lifelong learner, runner/walker enthusiast, genealogist/researcher, world traveler, voracious reader of historical literature, Hawai'i is a special place for me. In my inner self, I am experiencing a spirituality that cannot be vocalized...the blue skies, sunshine, tradewinds engulfing my body and green sculptured mountains against the blue green ocean.  Running/walking having a conversation with your Creator is heaven and peacefulness.

In researching my family history, I discovered I loved searching for documents in small courthouses and libraries. One day I received a call from a publisher's editor to document Americans of African ancestry living in Hawai'i.  In February 2011, the book "Images of African Americans in Hawai'i"  was released by Arcadia Publishing.  The images in the book will give the world a look at people of African heritage lifestyle and assimilation into the Hawaiian culture dating back to the 1800s.  The book is dedicated to our first president of the United States, Barack Obama who was born and raised in my own neighborhood "Makiki" in Honolulu.  My children and the fuzzy hair kid (Obama) were the only children of color seen in that area near Punahou School where he went to school.  My children only went to Punahou School during the summer activities.

The co-author of "Images of African Americans in Hawai'i" is Ernest Golden.  He came to Hawai'i at age 19 as a defense worker to help rebuild Pearl Harbor after the bombing on December 7, 1941 by the Japanese.  Many of the images in the book were documented by him.
