Charles A. Cottrill (first row, third from left), an attorney, arrived in Honolulu with his wife and son in 1911. He was appointed by President Taft and confirmed by Congress to be the tax collector (Internal Revenue Service) for the Territory of Hawai‘i. A distinguished well-educated black man, Cottrill was interested in Republican politics and was welcomed by Hawaii’s Big Five corporations. They invited him to join several prestigious clubs and organizations. His son attended Punahou School (@punahouschool ), a private institution established by missionaries.

💫 #FlashbackFriday 💫

🌴 Frank Paiva Jr. was born in Kaupa’a on Hawai’i Island (Big Island) on May 26, 1892.

🖤 He was called “Tupert,” derives from “preto” (Portuguese word for “black”).

🇧🇷 His father, Frank Paiva Sr., was born in Parana, Brazil, in 1861.

🚢 When Frank Sr. Was old enough, he was hired as a seaman on a commercial ship sailing the high seas. He jumped ship in Hilo and made the Big Island his home. He met Frank Jr.’s mother, Shedrina Alice, who came to Hawai’i from Portugal.

💝 🎩 👰🏾 Frank Jr. married Mary daSilva in Papaikou, Hawai’i, as seen here on their wedding day. They had four children—Manuel, Annie, Florence, and Albert. Their descendants still live in the islands.

📰 #ThrowbackThursday #TBT 📰

During World War II, African American enlisted men often served as laborers. Their jobs were to load supplies on ships in preparation for the invasion against the Japanese in the Mariana Islands. Despite the hardships and second-class status of black soldiers, their role was important in every aspect of strategic planning to win the war.

✨ Happy Women’s Equality Day! ✨

For our #WednesdayWisdom, we feature Mary Ellen Pleasant (19 August 1814 – 4 January 1904), who was a successful 19th-century American entrepreneur, financier, real estate magnate and abolitionist. She identified herself as “a capitalist by profession” in the 1890 United States Census. In her autobiography published in San Francisco’s Pandex of the Press in January 1902, she stated her mother was a full blooded Louisiana negress and her father was a native Kanaka (Hawaiian).

In 1823, Betsey Stockton, an educator and nurse, was one of the first African women to come to the Hawaiian Islands with the Stewart family as missionaries. She was the first African American woman to learn the Hawaiian language—‘Ōlelo Hawai’i—and the first woman to establish a school at Lahainaluna for commoners.
