For the first time on film, 80-year-old Hawai‘i civil rights pioneer and Filipina activist Amy Agbayani gives voice to her own history, which in turn traces landmark events in the story of social justice in Hawai‘i. Her advocacy for diversity, equity and inclusion in the classroom and broader community serves as a lesson in persistence for the next generation of activists who hope to fight systemic racism and discrimination.
