BEKI's second racial justice film discussion will focus on the documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North. Filmmaker Katrina Browne discovers that her New England ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She and nine cousins retrace the Triangle Trade and gain powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide. Please watch the film on your own and join us for the discussion. The film is available free on Kanopy with a public library card (or for a fee on Vimeo).
