DeWolfs and Beatrice Manu"Powerful is an inadequate word to describe the 
impact of Katrina Browne's Traces of the Trade...[her] clear-headed film 
represents an intense and searing call for national dialogue."            
                       - Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter

"This is more than one family's painful reckoning. This is the nation's 
story - one that strips away the North's heroic mantle..."
                       - Cecelia Goodnow, Seattle Post-Intelligencer


In Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North, first-time 
filmmaker Katrina Browne makes a troubling discovery - her New England 
ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history.  She 
and nine fellow descendants set out to retrace the Triangle Trade: from 
their old hometown in Rhode Island to slave forts in Ghana, and sugar 
plantation ruins in Cuba.  Step by step, they uncover the vast extent of 
Northern complicity in slavery while also stumbling through the 
minefield of contemporary race relations.  In this bicentennial year of 
the U.S. abolition of the slave trade, Traces of the Trade offers 
powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide.
