Greetings,
We are doing something different this month in conjunction with the History museum we will meet in Lee Auditorium Instead of the ATT Room. We are expecting a large audience so please come early. The film will start at 1:00 promptly. A panel discussion will follow.
This Emmy-nominated film is a unique and disturbing journey of discovery into the history and
“living consequences” of slavery. Katrina Browne discovered that the rumor of her ancestors from Rhode Island, were one of the most prominent slave traders in the era of slavery.

Browne, who is a direct descendant of Mark Anthony DeWolf, the first slaver in the family, took the unusual step of writing to 200 slave descendants, inviting them to journey with her from Rhode Island to Ghana to Cuba and back. Only nine slave descendents signed up to retrace there ancestors from the homeland to the Americas. This film is Browne’s spellbinding account of that journey that.

For more information go to: www.tracesofthetrade.org

Date: Saturday November 21, 2009
Place: St. Louis History Museum
Lee Auditorium
Time: 1:00pm-3:00pm
Remember to arrive early for seating.
