Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North
April 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
On Monday, April 29th from 7:00-8:30 p.m., the Collegiate Peaks Forum Series and the Congregational United Church of Christ will present the Emmy-nominated documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North by Katrina Browne. Holly Fulton and Bill Peebles from the Traces of the Trade project will lead a discussion. The event is free and refreshments will be served.
Traces of the Trade filmmaker Katrina Browne discovered that her ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. Given the commonly held belief that the South was solely responsible for slavery, viewers may be surprised to learn that Browne’s ancestors were New Englanders. The film follows Browne and nine cousins on a remarkable journey through the history and legacy of New England’s hidden enterprise as they gain powerful perspectives on race and reparation.
