Traces of the Trade Film Screening
Adult Education Special Event
Sunday, October 15 in the School Auditorium
The Antiracism Discussion Group continues its film screening series with Katrina Browne's Traces of the Trade, a documentary about the history of slavery in the North. We are pleased to be joined by filmmaker Katrina Browne for a Q&A after the viewing. Refreshments will be provided.
In Traces of the Trade, Producer/Director Katrina Browne tells the story of her forefathers, the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. Given the myth that the South is solely responsible for slavery, viewers will be surprised to learn that Browne’s ancestors were Northerners. The film follows Browne and nine fellow family members on a remarkable journey which brings them face-to-face with the history and legacy of New England’s hidden enterprise.
