From overcoming a high school football injury that almost left Philip Henderson paralyzed we learn about how one’s life can change in an instant. It was this challenging experience that motivated Philip to find his passion in the outdoor industry for over three decades as a member and team leader of the North Face/National Geographic Everest Education Expedition, became one of few African Americans to summit Denali in 2013, and led an all African American ascent of Mt Kilimanjaro in 2018.
Philip’s passion for the outdoors not only led him up some of the highest mountains in the world but inspired him to create the Full Circle Everest Team Expedition up Everest in March of 2022.
This expedition will showcase the tenacity and strength of these climbers, and highlight the barriers that continue to exist for Black communities in accessing the outdoors. This historic attempt will inspire the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts, educators, leaders, and mountaineers of color to continue chasing their personal summits.
By listening to Philip’s story get ready to become more motivated, moved, and receive some much-needed life lessons on how believing in oneself cannot not only move your own soul but the soul of others.
