About this trip

Together, we will face the truth of our nation's history of 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, resources and yoga philosophy 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.

We invite you to engage in this transformational experience as we delve into these courageous conversations with trip facilitators Lettie Gore and Tommy Allgood. 


Lettie Gore is a historian, educator, and advocate living in Wilmington, NC. She is also the host and owner of her podcast History Shows Us. Lettie’s passion for telling history’s truths and connecting the past to today’s racial and social justice issues is evident in the work she does.

She received her MA in History in 2015, focusing primarily on American history and specializing in African-American studies. She received her MA in Conflict Management & Resolution in May 2020, allowing her to use mediation, facilitation, and effective communication skills in her work as an educator and advocate. Leading and facilitating workshops to equip people with skills to have the “hard” conversations is something Lettie also enjoys. This will be the 3rd Legacy Trip that Lettie has led. 


Thomas Garvin, better known as Tommy Allgood, is a Registered Nurse, Care Director, Facilitator, and Organizational Development Consultant based in Charlotte, NC. He/They have a passion for helping people navigate mental, emotional, and spiritual roadblocks by developing practices grounded in self and community that foster resilience and co-creation in the face of adversity and resistance. Tommy works with organizations to create cultures that are people-centered and compassion oriented, breaking down what it means to be in authentic service of self and communities. Tommy's current work includes: 

  • Advancing holistic modalities in organizations and with individuals 
  • Educating and transforming organizational visions and missions rooted in principles of diversity, inclusion, equity, and anti-racism principles
  • Individual discovery utilizing the holistic self (mind, body, spirit connection)

Reviews

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.

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.
