Students from Center for Tomorrow's Leaders paint a mural at the Wo Fat building in Honolulu's Chinatown.

Artist Solomon Enos led students from the Center for Tomorrow's Leaders in a weekend effort painting a mural on the historic Wo Fat building at the corner of North Hotel and Maunakea streets. The mission: to stamp out graffiti and crime. Enter a dragon traveling through time and on his tail — high schoolers, public and private — helping to make a little corner of their world a bit brighter and a lot more colorful. A bit of weed and seed, if you get the drift. HPR's Catherine Cruz spoke with Enos, businessman Eddie Flores and students about the Chinatown project.
