Join co-sponsors All Together Williamsburg, a community organization bridging racial, ethnic and cultural lines, and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for their three-part modern video series. The film series kicks-off the 40 years of African American Interpretation initiative at Colonial Williamsburg.
Part one is on January 6. You are invited to view Traces of the Trade. The Emmy nominated documentary tells the story of the DeWolf family, the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. Produced and director by DeWolf descendant Katrina Browne, the film chronicles ten DeWolf descendants as they learn their family’s role and impact in African American history.
Part two occurs on January 13. Join us for Ava DuVernay’s Emmy award winning and Oscar nominated film 13TH. The film has been described as a “thought-provoking documentary” centered on the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom.
Part three concludes the series on January 20. Community members are invited to an open discussion facilitated by members of the Colonial Williamsburg's Education, Research and Historical Interpretation staff. Did you have questions or comments from the video series? Attendees are encouraged to bring their comments and questions and participate.
There is no charge for these film series events and all community members are encouraged to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
