This uprising is on the Island

The good people of Martha's Vineyard raise their voices too.
In the town of Oak Bluffs last Sunday, Ebony Goldwire explained why she could not be silent.

“I have actually not been able to watch George Floyd’s murder in its entirety. I have not been able to stomach it. I’ve only been able to watch clips. And it was Thursday morning [when] I was finally able to see the clip when he cried out for his mother. And in that moment I saw my son and I promised myself that would not be his reality.”

On Monday, some 300 people rallied at the intersection of Fives Corners where the intra-Island public life happens.
