The Vineyard has always been a very special place for me since I starting coming to this beautiful place, over 10 years ago. After a week in the Vineyard, I left there feeling inspired and motivated. Martha's Vineyard, and in particular Oak Bluffs, has always served as safe space for African Americans to get away from it all. But this trip was a little more magical and a little more special. It felt more like a family reunion where you meet family that you’ve never met before, but you knew you were connected to on some level. Oak Bluffs, MA is a historic African-American resort community that should be experienced by all, both young and old.
