Being Local in Hawai’i
'Ōlelo Community Media to Feature an Interview with Author Julia Estrella
Julia of Wahiawa has faced intolerance for cultural diversity first hand. She has been an outspoken advocate for equality throughout her life. She recently sat down with 'Ōlelo Community Media to talk about her book, Being Local in Hawai’i, which not only talks story about her multicultural experiences growing up on Oahu, but also discusses her far reaching experiences living in California and traveling around the world to Okinawa, the Philippines, Cuba, and Kenya. Watch for air times at olelo.org/tv-schedule for this enlightening interview.
Julia was born right before the attack on Pearl Harbor. She grew up knowing many people that were sent to the U.S. internment camps for the Japanese. She describes overcoming institutional racism and going on to have a successful and meaningful career. The many and varied enlightening stories in her book talk about the people she has known over the years.
Julia and Kawena Young will be at the National Baha`i Center on December 7 at 6:30 p.m. to present “I Have A Dream – Unity in Diversity.” A free spaghetti dinner will be served and Julia’s book will be available for purchase.
