Martha's Vineyard


Over July 4th weekend, I was maxin' and relaxin' in a black-owned home in the Vineyard where Adam Clayton Powell's house was just a few doors down.

It was a house filled with 4 black couples discussing everything from race to relationships under the roof of a home of a historic black family who once owned 4 homes in the Vineyard. I wonder how similar our conversations were to the ones they had. I hope they looked down on us enjoying their cottage and smiled.
