"Bottom Line: An honest, painful and important doc about one family's confrontation with its legacy as slave traders. Powerful is an inadequate word to describe the impact of Katrina Browne's "Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North," an examination of her forebears, the DeWolf family of Bristol, Rhode Island, the largest slave traders in U.S. history."
"This film, has a fresh, almost hand held camera look,
and there are great images peppered though out."

READ THE BOOK
Inheriting the Trade by Thomas Norman DeWolf
"Inheriting the Trade" is like a slow-motion mash-up, a first person view from within one of the country's founding families as it splinters, then puts itself back together again." - Edward Ball, author of Slaves in the Family
