UMOCA is proud to host Visions in the Dark: The Life of Pinky Thompson, a free film screening and panel discussion presented by Pacific Islanders in Communication (PIC). Sustaining a serious eye wound in Normandy during WWII that left him in the dark for two years, Myron “Pinky” Thompson emerged with a clear vision of his purpose in life, leading him to becoming a social worker and revered leader in the Native Hawaiian community. Thompson illuminated the Pacific Islander experience, leaving a legacy of positive social change and pride in Pacific heritage. The duration of this film is 60 minutes.
