1946: The Great Hawaiʻi Sugar Strike production materials

This subcollection unedited footage from the documentary 1946: The Great Hawaiʻi Sugar Strike. About twenty six thousand sugar workers and their families, 76 thousand people in all, began a 79-day strike on September 1, 1946 that completely shut down 33 of Hawaiʻi's 34 plantations. Produced 50 years after this landmark strike this program shows how it forever changed the islands economically, politically, and socially ushering in a new era of participatory democracy both on the plantations and throughout Hawaiʻi's political and social institutions. The show features an array of never-before-seen photos, artifacts and interviews with surviving strikers, their relatives and friends from all the islands who organized the food-kitchens and support committees.
