“Coming back to France from my first trip to the States in 1975, I was asked about Florida, California, New York and I answered with what I knew: tobacco fields, hippies, and fiddle music from North Carolina Appalachian mountains. When I came back from Hawai’i last month and was asked about the beaches, I answered with what I lived through there with my ILI fellows: multiculturalism, reclaiming the land, a fish camp, anti-blackness issues, a stage performance with Muthi Reed, Hula and so much more. Ili means “skin” and I deeply felt mine.”  – Gwylene Gallimard
