  First Friday of October
Peterborough - Free KidCraft Art activity for kids of all ages. 7:30pm: Film: Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North. With talk by James DeWolf Perry. Contradicting popular belief that the South alone was engaged in slavery, this film follows Rhode Island DeWolf family members as they discover their family's past as largest slave-trading dynasty in U.S. history. From 1769 to 1820, DeWolf ships sailed from Bristol, R.I. to West Africa with rum to trade for African men, women, and children. More than 10,000 Africans were taken to DeWolfe sugar plantations in Cuba. Molasses were transported back to Bristol distilleries and turned into rum. A U.S. senator and the richest man in the U.S. during his lifetime, James DeWolf's enterprise was just one of a number of slave trading dynasties, but his network linked many other northern enterprises to the slave trade. Admission: Adults $6, Senior $5, and Members Free!
