About this trip

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.

Since 2018, Black woman owned and led Legacy Trips provides immersive racial and social justice oriented, spiritually based, experiences visiting historical landmarks (such as Montgomery & Selma, AL) for the purpose of doing deep, inner work in a supportive environment alongside a loving community led by BIPOC teachers where everyone seeks to educate themselves while integrating mindful action against oppressive systems and strategizing ways to affect personal and collective change with the goal of liberation for all.


This is my second Legacy Trip so I came to this already knowing the quality of experience that Legacy Trips provide. When I tell you that this trip blew me out of the water I am not exaggerating. I had been wanting to do plant medicine for a few years but was really concerned about the safety of the space and the care that would be provided while in the medicine. La Vida Divine is an outstanding organization with thoughtful and caring facilitators. I trusted Legacy Trips before I met La Vida Divine and feel that the relationship between Legacy Trips and La Vida Divine is a most perfect union. I highly recommend this trip if you are looking to do a plant medicine journey and are serious about being intentional and thoughtful about your experience. Love Tina, Goddess Jhoselyn and Gaddy, forever my favorites!

It was an exceptional trip with wonderful people. I was concerned, with the intensity of the trip, if there would be time to fully explore and take in all that we experienced. But the program structure allowed for not only individual time to process, but a group interaction that supported the emotional content. The hotel was great, the rooms comfortable and the meals were delicious! I will be traveling with this group again!!!

My team and I over at the Institute of Black Imagination used Legacy trips in part for our trip to Montgomery, AL to visit EJI’s museum and memorial. We had a delightful experience. Our team was unique because we were looking for a private trip crafting our experience around our organizational values while still respecting what Tina and Charone at Legacy Trips offer to their trip members. Tina and Charone met with us weekly, up until our trip date, going over logistics with us, and answering any questions when we needed local vendor options Charone was steadfast in getting us many reliable and assorted options to help make our trip to Montgomery all that we wanted it to be. There were a few moments in the planning process when we were a bit worried, simply because we weren’t used to letting someone else externally have control over what our team experienced but when all was said and done they delivered. This trip wouldn’t have been what it was without Charone’s coordination and support + Tina’s authentic facilitation and making space for whatever it is the team was feeling. I truly appreciate how they rolled with the punches as we made a few refinements to the trip itinerary and they did their best in accommodating us. The team loved the stay at the hotel and raved about how they had an awesome, enriching time.
