(Hawaii News Now) - February marks Black History Month across the nation. It's a time to celebrate and recognize the achievements of minority leaders here in Hawaii.
An exhibit at Honolulu Hale will also showcase photographs of Senator Inouye and other congressional leaders who participated in the civil rights movement, including Hiram Fong, Patsy Mink, Spark Matsunaga, Pat Saiki and Hawaii's first Civil Right Commission Chairman Rev. Abraham Akaka. Exhibit is called "Hawaii and Alaska's Contributions to the Civil Rights Movement."
