Honolulu Mural from OG Slick

Another View of Paradise. OG Slick’s mural, titled “Can’t Save the Queen,” captures the continuing politics of colonialism in contemporary Hawai’i — politics that were top of mind for the teens in Jacked Up and Unjust.

To see the words of Queen Lili’oukalani’s protest letter to President McKinley, June 7, 1897:  http://libweb.hawaii.edu/digicoll/annexation/protest/liliu5.html
