Two People, One Journey residency by Thomas DeWolf and Sharon Morgan

DeWolf and Morgan, coauthors of Gather at the Table: The Healing Journey of a Daughter of Slavery and a Son of the Slave Trade, presented programs designed to help the college community, area high school students, and the community at large examine how social and racial history can inform one’s knowledge of past injustices. The residency also included a screening of Traces of the Trade: A Story From the Deep North, a film that explored the struggles among DeWolf descendants to acknowledge the role their ancestors played in slave trading as well as the efforts to heal the wounds caused by slavery.
