Traces of the Trade Tour 2023 | St. John’s Episcopal Church, Palacios

April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Episcopal Health Foundation in partnership with St. John’s Episcopal Church and Sanford Community Center in Palacios, TX invites you to view the film Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North and engage in dialogue facilitated by DeWolf descendant Dain Perry and wife Constance Perry.

The documentary recounts one New England family’s involvement in the slave trade in the 18th and early 19th centuries against the backdrop of Northern business, communities and residents who condoned and benefited from slave trading. The film will be followed by facilitated discussion.

Racial discrimination and systemic racism have profound effects on the health and well-being not only of minority populations, but of our broader communities. EHF is uniquely positioned alongside the Diocese of Texas to partner with congregations to build bridges of health and wholeness into communities. Recognizing our Gospel call to seek and serve Christ in all persons, together we will listen, advise, and work to build healthy communities.

When: Saturday, April 1, 2023 @ 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: Sanford Community Center
907 8th Street, Palacios, TX 77465
