Pacific Heartbeat: Visions in the Dark: The Life of Pinky Thompson (2016)

August 31, 2017 @ 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Our friends at PBS Hawaiʻi are looking back at the history of Hōkūleʻa with special programming throughout the month of August.

A serious eye wound sustained in Normandy during World War II left Myron “Pinky” Thompson in the dark for two years. From this, he emerged with a clear vision of his life’s purpose. Thompson left a palpable legacy as a social worker, mentor and leader in the Native Hawaiian community. In the late 1970s, Thompson served as Polynesian Voyaging Society’s President. Presented by Pacific Islanders in Communications.
