First All-Black American Expedition To Everest Set To Make History

November 5, 2021

Roughly 60 years after the first American expedition to the top of Everest, another group sets out to make history. This time, a group of Black athletes from across the country, led by mountaineer and former teacher Phil Henderson. The group, called Full Circle Everest, is expected to make their attempt on the mountain in 2022. The folks at Mountaineers Books spoke with Henderson about what it means to be part of the first Black team to attempt the mountain. Adventure Journal
