In observance of Black History Month, our Adult Education time between the worship services on Sunday Feb. 17 and 24 will feature conversations about the reality of race in America. To kick-start the conversations, we will be viewing films the preceding Fridays that place the racial divide in various contexts. Our first film will be the feature documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North. In this feature, filmmaker Katrina Browne discovers that her New England ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She and nine cousins retrace the Triangle Trade and gain powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide. What is the legacy of the slave trade in America? How is it still being lived? Join in for fellowship-movie-viewing: part 1 on Friday, February 15; part 2 on Friday, February 22. The discussions will follow on Sunday, Feb. 17, and Sunday, Feb. 24.
