Our story begins in Belper, England, the birthplace of Samuel Slater, known as the “Father of the American Industrial Revolution” but a traitor to his native land. As Belper artists find ways to creatively rediscover his story, researchers dig up long-lost information on the man they label “Slater the Traitor." In Pawtucket, Samuel establishes a partnership with Moses Brown and William Almy.
