This special Legacy Trip is designed for Black women only, with a focus on having a space to reflect, share, explore, grieve, heal and celebrate together.
This trip was created to protect Black women by having our own space...
Our own space to reflect and grieve, to be vulnerable and to heal, and to celebrate and rejoice, unapologetically,
Our own space to face the tragedies and triumphs of our ancestors,
Our own space to strategize ways in which we can contribute to tearing down systematic racism,
Our own space to unpack our own internalized oppression,
And our own space to share our stories about how we got (and are getting) free and how we will help others get free.
We invite you to engage in this transformational experience as we delve into these courageous conversations with trip facilitator, Kina Reed.
"My name is Joquina Reed. But you all most definitely can call me Kina. By far one of the most important hats I wear in life is being a fabulous aunt to 8 nieces and nephews! In addition to being Nanny Kina, I am also a DEI consultant and facilitator, researcher, learning strategist, and community advocate. I also hold both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Communications. Every day I wake up committed to moving us all closer to the goal line of shared humanity. I often find my words feel limited by not speaking my fore-parents tongue, but I still speak. I enjoy sticking my hand in soil to remind myself the universe is both bigger than I am and still enlarged by my acts. I’m constantly looking for opportunities to help others enlarge themselves and step out of the boxes they no longer fit. As a life-long learner and educator, I affirm the words of my great ancestor, Anna Julia Cooper, “The cause of freedom is not the cause of a race or a sect, a party or a class - it is the cause of humankind, the very birthright of humanity.” Follow my projects the AntiBlackness Reader and Divesting from Whiteness to learn more!"
The cost for each participant is only $300 as we hope to cover the remaining balance of $600 through our fundraiser for the 10 Black women who will attend.
*Please note that deposits for all Legacy Trips are non-refundable.
Deposits for all Legacy Trips are non-refundable. The balance of the total cost of the trip, not including the deposit, is refundable in the event the participant requests in writing to cancel within 30 days from the start of the trip they registered for. If the need to cancel arises, the participant has the option to put whatever monies they have already paid towards an upcoming Legacy Trip during the same calendar year.
We will continue to follow the Covid situation and update our protocols accordingly.
We ask that trip participants provide a negative Covid test within 1-3 days of the first day of the Legacy Trip. Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the weekend and we will adhere to all policies of the hotel, memorial and museum.
We have taken steps to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by requiring face masks and requiring temperature checks for all visitors before entry into buildings. We are also reducing total occupancy in the Legacy Museum to 25% of capacity to limit the risk of exposure. All visitors will be provided with hand sanitizer, latex-free gloves, and sanitizing wipes to go through the museum with less risk. We are replacing some exhibits with "no-touch" options for access. We have also installed UV lights to kill bacteria and contaminants in the space on a constant basis. If you have additional questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
