The American Club of Sweden had the honor to have Katrina Browne among the panelists at our Intercultural Forum: Hatred and Hope on October 14, 2014 in Stockholm. She discovered that her ancestors were the largest slave-traders in U.S history. Facing the facts made Katrina gather a group of relatives to trace the trade. Made into an Emmy Award nominated documentary film – the story has created a context for more dialogue and activities related to the consequences of slave-trade in today’s societies. We had the chance to interview Katrina Browne while she was in Stockholm. Learn more about her work at: www.tracingcenter.org and www.tracesofthetrade.org.
