With more than 740,000 active members and counting, GirlTrek is the largest health movement and nonprofit for Black women and girls in the country. They are on a mission to inspire one million Black women to walk in the direction of their healthiest, most fulfilled lives by the end of 2020.
GirlTrek kicked off their Black History Bootcamp series on June 1st – the Bootcamp is an epic 21-day walking meditation sharing the stories and legacies of legendary and revolutionary Black women in history. Women like Audre Lorde, Ella Baker and Shirley Chisholm. Every day you can join GirlTrek founders Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison as they hop on the phone and take a walk to discuss who these women are and why everyone should know their stories. And while we’re already in the last week of this 21-day bootcamp, there’s no reason you can’t start today. Or tomorrow. Or right now! These stories are relevant any time – so start from the beginning of the series or listen in whatever order feels right to you.
