INHERITING THE TRADE A Northern Family Confronts Its Legacy as the Largest Slave-Trading Dynasty in U.S.History

by | Read by Thomas Norman DeWolf

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

When a cousin decided to make a documentary about the DeWolf family's slave-trading past, Thomas Norman DeWolf joined several family members on a journey to retrace the routes of his family's slave ships from Ghana to Cuba and the United States. DeWolf's voice reflects his admitted naïveté--at times too much so--as he discusses his growing awareness and shame over ancestor James DeWolf's role in the Triangle Trade. The author's descriptions of the places and history he discovered along the journey are powerful, and the topic is both compelling and important. However, the personal angle--the making of the documentary and the family discussions--distracts at times from the listener's understanding of and coming to terms with the horrors of the slave trade.
