Racism is alive and well in the United States and we must confront it in ourselves if we ever want to move forward. Please join us for a FREE screening of the documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story From the Deep North, a unique and disturbing journey into the history and legacy of the slave trade in the North.

"A far-reaching personal documentary examination of the slave trade...The implications of the film are devastating."
— Stephen Holden, The New York Times

In 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 and gain powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide.

Producer/Director: Katrina Browne. Co-Directors: Alla Kovgan, Jude Ray. Co-Producers: Elizabeth Delude-Dix, Juanita Capri Brown.
