Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North

Saturday April 14, 7pm, First Church Littleton

In Traces of the Trade, Producer/Director Katrina Browne tells the story of her forefathers, the largest slave-trading family in US history. Given the myth that the South is solely responsible for slavery, viewers may be surprised to learn that Browne’s ancestors were Northerners. The film follows Browne and nine of her family members on a remarkable journey which brings them face-to-face with the history and legacy of New England’s hidden enterprise.

This free film series explores the lives and experiences of the “other” and expands our awareness of our neighbors as well as often marginalized individuals and groups. Please join us for a lively discussion. All are welcome.
