The mission of the Tracing Center is to create greater awareness of the vast extent of complicity in slavery and the transatlantic slave trade and to inspire acknowledgement, dialogue and active response to this history and its many legacies. The Center seeks to promote racial equity and reconciliation by educating citizens about racial privilege, structural inequality, their historical antecedents and the emotional baggage that frequently accompanies racial discourse.
The work of the Tracing Center grows out of the documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North, in which Katrina Browne discovers that her New England ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She and nine relatives retrace the Triangle Trade, exploring the ways in which slavery impacts our nation today and gaining powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide.
