A viewing/discussion of the documentary film by Katrina Browne

July 22, 2008 (Tuesday)
Noon-1:30 p.m.
Community Change Library on Racism
14 Beacon Street, Room 605
Boston MA 02108

Please join Community Change staff and friends for a viewing and  
discussion of the new documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from  
the Deep North by first-time filmmaker Katrina Browne. The  
documentary follows Browne, who discovers her ancestors were the  
largest slave-trading family in U.S. history, and nine fellow  
descendants as they retrace the Triangle Trade from Bristol, Rhode  
Island to Ghana and to Cuba. They uncover Northern Complicity in  
slavery and tackle the challenges around racism and white privilege.  
This documentary premiered on PBS in June, this year of the  
bicentennial of the abolition of the slave trade, and will be  
rebroadcast in the future. Two cousins from the film will show a 45  
minute version of the film, answer questions and participate in our  
discussion.
