We revisit a trip that Radio Boston's Paris Alston took to Martha's Vineyard in 2019.

As Paris puts it, growing up, she and her family knew of Martha's Vineyard as the "Black Hamptons" — a place where the Obamas, Oprah, and other prominent Black people vacationed. She explores the island and talks about her connection to it.

This segment aired on February 24, 2021.
