'Traces of the Trade' Movie and Discussion at NMU

Traces of the Trade
Traces of the Trade

The largest slave-trading family in U.S. history was not from the South, but from New England. In her documentary, "Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North," producer/director Katrina Browne and nine family members embark on a journey that brings them face to face with the history and legacy of their forefathers' hidden enterprise. It will be shown at Northern Michigan University on Thursday, Oct. 6. Admission is free.

NMU's Multicultural Education and Resource Center will host the presentation at 7 p.m. in the University Center Pioneer Rooms. Dain and Constance Perry will facilitate a discussion on race, reconciliation and healing after the screening.
