Insurrection Part 2: How the Hawaiian Kingdom Government Was Overthrown | Transmissions from Hawaii 05

by | Jun 22, 2021 | Episodes

The overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893 is a pivotal moment in the history of Hawaii. While many are familiar with the broad strokes of the story and why events happened in the way that they did, there is much to the history of the overthrow that often gets overlooked. On this episode of Transmissions from Hawaii, Dr. Ronald Williams Jr. sheds light on the history that resulted in a group of insurrectionists overthrowing the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom. This is the second installment of our three part mini-series called Insurrection. Although you should listen to part one to get the full story, you do not have to listen to it to understand this episode.
