Screening of Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North / presented by Holly Fulton and Bill Peebles
Mt. Diablo Peace & Justice Center, 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek
In Traces of the Trade, Producer/Director Katrina Browne tells the story of her forefathers, the DeWolf family, the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. Given the myth that the South is solely responsible for slavery, viewers will be surprised to learn that Browne's ancestors were Northerners. The film follows Browne and nine fellow family members on a remarkable journey which brings them face-to-face with the history and legacy of New England's hidden enterprise. http://www.tracesofthetrade.org/
Holly Fulton is a descendant of the DeWolf family. She and her husband, Bill Peebles, give talks and facilitate discussions as outreach for Traces of the Trade. Holly is on the board of Coming to the Table (http://www.comingtothetable.org), an initiative that involves direct descendants of slavery, black and white, in exploring their unique role in addressing the legacy of slavery on a personal and societal level. Holly and Bill will lead a discussion after the film.
