Martha's Vineyard Museum

Film and Conversation: Our Place in the Sun

Our Place in the Sun is a retrospective documentary that reveals the unique but hidden history of Martha's Vineyard tracing the establishment of the Black community from the 1700's to the present. The film explores a community that has preserved its traditions and outlooks as the Vineyard has changed on all sides. Five generations of year-round residents and summer visitors contribute their perspective in this story of a place in the sun that has thrived for more than two centuries. In honor of its thirtieth anniversary, and in collaboration with The Cottagers and the MV Camp Meeting Association, join us for a screening and panel discussion to follow.
