As part of the COMMERCE year exploration, we present the feature documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North. Filmmaker Katrina Browne discovers that her New England ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She and nine cousins retrace the Triangle Trade between Africa, the West Indies and the American colonies and uncover powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide.
A discussion will follow the film with a member of the DeWolf family who appears in the film and has extensive experience discussing these issues.
