“Holding Fast The Dream” on DVD

Miles M. Jackson wrote to alert us that “Holding Fast the Dream” is now available for purchase on DVD:

“Holding Fast The Dream: Hawaii’s African American Experience” chronicles their compelling stories: a young Black researcher whose scientific breakthrough in treating Hansen’s Disease was stolen, and who then died in obscurity…the tragedy of racism in a multicultural paradise…and the significant achievements of Hawai’i’s African Americans in science, social justice, and the arts.

“Holding Fast The Dream” premiered at the 2010 Hawai’i International Film Festival. It was a featured selection of the 2011 San Diego Black Film Festival, and received its broadcast premiere in March 2011 on PBS Hawai’i.
