HSTA President Osa Tui, Jr., said, “While we celebrate the history of our country with a holiday like Independence Day later this summer, it is important that we also recognize that our country has its roots based upon the exploitation of human slavery and indentured servitude. Education is the cornerstone of our democracy and making sure that we keep ourselves fully aware of our past helps to ensure that we don’t make those same mistakes in the future.”
