A viewing of the feature documentary, “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North,” in which filmmaker Katrina Browne discovers that her DeWolf ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history will be held Jan. 21 at 5 p.m. in Room 0016 of the Westbrook Building at Duke Divinity School. Following the viewing, guest speakers Dain Perry, a DeWolf descendent, and his wife, Constance, will lead a discussion.

There also will be a panel discussion with the Perrys  and Duke Divinity School faculty on the following day, Jan. 22, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 0012 of the Westbrook Building.

In the film, Browne and her nine cousins retrace the Triangle Trade and gain a powerful new perspective on the role of race in America.

This event is co-sponsored by the Black Seminarians' Union, Dean's Office, Office of Black Church Studies, and Office of Student Life & Formation.
