BUENA VISTA – Special Movie Event
November 11 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
The Forum is joining with the Buena Vista Congregational United Church of Christ to present a special showing of the movie, “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North.” From 1769 to 1820, the DeWolf family trafficked in human beings. This 2008 film follows ten DeWolf descendants as they retrace the steps of the Triangle Trade and their subsequent struggle as they consider how to repair their family’s past. They discover their love/hate relationship with their own Yankee culture and privilege and the healing/transformation needed not only “out there,” but inside themselves.
Following the movie, discussion will be led by Bill Peebles, a retired pastor, and his wife Holly Fulton, who is a DeWolf descendant and was in the family journey portrayed in the film.
