In this book, Adams presents a collection of essays on Hawaiian and Black histories in the Islands, discusses the historical keepers of black culture, interviews selected outstanding black residents who talk story and ethics, chewing the water. She presents significant cultural and community organizations and events of people working together. She shares speeches of Barack Obama in an effort to situate and dignify blacks in Hawaii and their significant and often overlooked and forgotten roles in the values basic to democracy: "we not me," freedom, equality and justice under the law, values of citizenship, service, community, family, the sacred environment, spirituality, compassion, health care reform, the end of poverty and homelessness, the development of a progressive and practical and empowering educational system, the history, formation and representation and diversity in the formation of the Hawaiian Islands after the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy.
