Description

Join CRER and Producer/Director Katrina Browne for a screening of the film "Traces of the Trade". This film tells the story of Katrina's forefathers, (the De Wolfs), 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 Katrina and nine fellow family members on a remarkable journey which brings them face-to-face with the hirstory and legacy of the New England's hidden enterprise. This is a unique screening as it takes place in the former home of William Cunninghame, a man who made profit from the enslavement of Africans, now the GoMA. This film raises important questions that apply to post-slaving nations as a whole. What are the legacies of slavery? What history do we inherit as individuals and as citizens? Katrina Browne will also be available for a Question and Answer session after the screening.
