Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North will have its broadcast premiere on Tuesday, June 24 at 10:00pm on PBS.
As I’ve previously mentioned, Traces of the Trade will be featured on the PBS series P.O.V. (“Point of View”). P.O.V. is television’s longest-running showcase for independent documentary films, and Traces of the Trade will air as the season premiere of P.O.V.
For those who aren’t aware, Traces of the Trade is a documentary about the slave-trading D’Wolf family of Bristol, R.I. The film follows descendants of Senator James DeWolf and his family as they retrace the route of the triangle trade and debate the legacy of slavery and the slave trade in the U.S. today. The documentary premiered in competition at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
