On Wednesday, February 7 at 7 PM, the Wayland Interfaith Leaders Association presents part of a series of anti-racism events. Co-sponsored by Community United Methodist Church and Good Shepherd Parish of Wayland, they will screen the documentary, “Traces of the Trade
The film follows the unexpected journey of a New England family as they discover the buried history of their family’s role in the slave trade. It is a story that places New England as both participant in and beneficiary of the global slave trade in the 19th century.

A discussion will follow the screening.
