Inheriting the Trade is Tom DeWolf s powerful and disarmingly honest memoir of the journey in which 10 family members retraced the steps of their ancestors and uncovered the hidden history of New England and the other northern states.Their journey through the notorious Triangle Trade from New England to West Africa to Cuba proved life altering, forcing DeWolf to face the horrors of slavery directly for the first time It also inspired him to contend with the complicated legacy that continues to affect black and white Americans, Africans, and Cubans today. Inheriting the Trade reveals that the North s involvement in slavery was as common as the South s Not only were black people enslaved in the North for over 200 years, but the vast majority of all slave trading in America was done by Northerners.With searing candor, DeWolf tackles both the internal and external challenges of his journey, writing frankly about feelings of shame, white male privilege, the complicity of churches, America s historic amnesia regarding slavery and our nation s desperate need for healing.An urgent call for meaningful and honest dialogue, Inheriting the Trade illuminates a path toward a hopeful future and provides a persuasive argument that the legacy of slavery isn t merely a Southern issue but an enduring American one.
