Together, we will face the truth of our nation's history of anti-Black racial terror and violence, self reflect on the ways each of us have upheld and perpetuated white supremacy in our lives, and embrace our ability to affect change and dismantle racism, first within ourselves, and then in our families and communities.
Our purpose is to listen to and learn from Black leadership, utilize antiracism tools and resources to strategize ways to do less harm, be better co-conspirators to BIPOC and develop ways to move forward with mindful action toward collective liberation.
Once registered, participants will receive soul assignments, which is basically pre-work (books, podcasts, documentaries, etc) to help them get started on building a solid foundation for their personal anti-racism journey.
This anti-racism weekend includes visits to: The National Memorial For Peace and Justice, The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, The Mothers of Gynecology Museum and more.
Following every Legacy Trip, guests are invited and encouraged to participate in free monthly alumni calls to stay engaged with the Legacy family and continue cultivating community and accountability in their ongoing antiracism journey. We also offer a Legacy Trips After Care program for those who want a more expansive and comprehensive support system.
We invite you to engage in this transformational experience as we delve into these courageous conversations with trip facilitator Patricia Taylor.
Patricia A. Taylor is a wife, mom, and California native turned Texas transplant. She believes in brown Jesus, loving all our neighbors, and having critical conversations around racial justice with clarity and candor. As an anti-racism educator, podcaster, and writer, she has had various speaking and teaching opportunities, including contributing to Sesame Street in Communities through education-based videos and course writing. You may connect with her work on Instagram @patricia_a_taylor and on Facebook at Some Thoughts From Your Black Friend by Patricia A. Taylor.
