Dr. Turman's Lab

Legacy Weaver's Lab stands as a beacon of learning, creativity, and community. But to truly understand the Lab, one must first know the story of its founder, Aiesha Turman, an educator, documentary filmmaker, writer, parent, and Reiki Master Teacher whose life journey is as rich and diverse as the Lab itself.

Aiesha's story begins with her deep roots in African American history, literature, and art. Her passion for storytelling was ignited by the profound narratives of Zora Neale Hurston, Ntozake Shange, Pauline Hopkins, James Baldwin, and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper – authors who painted vivid pictures of the African American experience and who inspired Aiesha to weave her own tapestry of stories.

With a PhD and a spirited drive to educate and empower, Aiesha embarked on a career that saw her engaging with diverse communities, sharing knowledge and fostering understanding. Her journey as a documentary filmmaker further enriched her perspective, allowing her to explore stories through the lens of film, a medium that powerfully captures the human experience.

Her work on the curriculum form documentary film 'Crip Camp' not only showcased her prowess as a curriculum developer but also deepened her understanding of the power of storytelling in driving social change.

But Aiesha's path was not just about educating others; it was also about her own personal growth and healing. As a Reiki Master Teacher, she delved into the realms of energy and holistic healing, adding another layer to her understanding of the human spirit. This journey into healing practices further inspired her to integrate holistic wellness into her educational methods, recognizing the deep connection between mind, body, and soul.

The culmination of these experiences and passions led to the birth of Legacy Weaver's Lab. Envisioned as a space where education, history, art, and healing intersect, the Lab is a reflection of Aiesha's multifaceted career and her commitment to legacy-building. It's a place where individuals can come to learn, grow, and connect, all while exploring the rich tapestry of African American history and culture.

At Legacy Weaver's Lab, Aiesha combines her expertise in storytelling, her knowledge of history, and her skills in curriculum development to create a unique learning environment. The Lab offers courses, workshops, and digital products that are not just informative but transformative, designed to inspire participants to explore their own stories and histories.

More than just a learning center, Legacy Weaver's Lab is a community. It's a space where participants can share their experiences, learn from one another, and build connections that transcend the classroom. The membership component of the Lab fosters a sense of belonging, providing ongoing support and resources for those on their journey of learning and self-discovery.

In essence, Legacy Weaver's Lab is Aiesha's legacy – a legacy that is continuously woven through the stories, histories, and lives of those who walk through its doors. It's a testament to the power of education, the richness of history, and the transformative nature of storytelling. Here, every participant is not just a learner but a legacy weaver, contributing their own unique thread to the ever-growing tapestry of the Lab.
