On April 20, 2021, Derek Chauvin was convicted of third-degree murder, second-degree unintentional murder, and second-degree manslaughter. Among activists, the feeling was of relief but not closure. Although it was the right decision, it was just one decision. Hundreds of families affected by police violence never receive an acknowledgment of wrongdoing, let alone reparation of harm. The trial could not possibly bring about justice for Black America. A year after George Floyd’s murder, we ask ourselves, how far have we really come in our pursuit of a world where no more lives are lost as tragically, senselessly, and unjustly as Floyd’s?
YWCA is pleased to announce that our long-awaited project, YWCA at Hillside, is now accepting applications for affordable housing.

After Dr. Kabria Baumgartner’s talk at the 11th Annual Engaging Communities Luncheon, I was reminded of the saying: “History is written by the victors.” In telling the stories of African Americans who were forcibly brought to Newburyport as slaves, we are reminded that slavery was not isolated to the South. Newburyport had a part in those immoral actions.
