Free event looks
at Prince Kuhio

The next installment of the "Biography: Five Lives" series is about Prince Kuhio, taking place 7 p.m. today at the Judiciary History Center.

The program features readings from the prince's speeches and writings, plus guests such as Washington Place preservation director Jim Bartels, the Native Hawaiian Legal Corp.'s Mahealani Kamau'u, Prince Kuhio Civic Club's Linda Delaney, associate professor of ethnic studies Davianna McGregor and political science assistant professor Noenoe Silva.

Kuhio's career straddled the hard times of the Royal Overthrow -- when he was arrested -- to the early days of annexation to the United States, when Kuhio became a Republican and Hawaii's congressional delegate. While in Washington, he successfully lobbied Congress for the creation of the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act.

The event is free and presented by the Center for Biographical Research and the Judiciary History Center. Call 956-3774.
