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.

Legacy Trips

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.


My Legacy Trip was a profoundly impactful experience. The trip was layered with attention to detail, loving intention and seamless organization. Visiting the Legacy Museum, the Lynching Memorial and Selma alongside brilliant educators added valuable perspective and context to devastating history. The group discussions had a gentle, inclusive pace and I left the trip feeling hopeful, inspired and forever changed. Legacy Trips have my wholehearted recommendation. If you are considering joining a group, do not hesitate!

A life changing trip. Very well organized and run. Excellent educator -Lettie Gore and facilitators - Jen Kenny & Chelsea Strawberry and a group of smart caring women in our group. We visited The Legacy Museum, The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Edmund Pettus Bridge and came together for discussion, education and centering each day. Highly recommend this Legacy Trip.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience and for allowing us to be a part of your antiracism journey Anne!

The trip in regards to travel went smoothly. Olivia’s communication kept us well informed before and during the experience, no confusion. The site visits were deeply emotionally impactful. As for the group discussions, they were ok. I got the impression that the facilitators were looking for people to express themselves more and I sensed people were holding back. If a goal of the discussion portions is to have more fruitful discussions, then the facilitators should explore methods of creating a safe space so that happens more readily.

Thanks for this Siera. We are glad that your travel and communication with Olivia went well and smooth. And I appreciate your feedback about the facilitation as it will help us review some key elements to ensure that we are creating a brave space during our trips.

Despite tropical storm Claudette busting her way through Montgomery, last weekend I had the most moving, spirit-ful, connecting, experience on the JUNE 18-20 LEGACY TRIP . I finally got to hug and hold Tina who was the leader; I hugged Olivia, Abbi, Colleen, Jade and Robyn. We laughed hard and cried hard and worked hard. We found out how much more difficult work there is ahead with new resources and new combinations of thought and action. In 2019 Shay Bouley (Black Girl in Maine) gave me a gift by publicly following Tina. Forever grateful to Tina and Olivia for making the first nationally recognized Juneteenth hold so much truth, joy and compassion. Repost 4/22/22

Kathi, I am humbled by your moving testimony and powerful reflections from our time together in Montgomery in June. Thank you for being willing to go deep and be vulnerable with us as you learned and felt and saw with new eyes more about our country's history of racial terror and violence, and for being open and willing to apply what we experienced together in your life and on your personal antiracism journey. It was a gift to hug your neck and hold your hand during the Juneteenth weekend. Thank you for showing up.
