How did I get here ?

Grab your cup… I’ll try to make it quick.

Peace & Blessings beloved. I am Dr. Aisha Abdul Rahman. I am a Philanthroprenuer, and Genealogy Librarian based out of 

Sacramento, CA



I have a huge passion for travel, photography, and videography

and sharing all that I learn during my journeys.



I attended my first family reunion in Baltimore, Maryland back in 2010, where the torch of keeping the family tree going was passed down to me. Shortly thereafter my grandmother passed away, and I was gifted with all her travel photos and vintage camera. I had always wanted to travel, but never had the time or the money with my whole focus being on my kids. 


Now with my children being adults, my family history has led me to amazing destinations and experiences like Ghana and Sierra Leone. 

Legacy Designs Studio

I founded Legacy Designs Studio as a 501c3 Art Gallery in the Virtual World of Second Life, amidst the beginning of the 2020 COVID Pandemic and Black Lives Matter Protests.


Shops were closing and artists were unable to show or sell their work. They were ill-prepared without the skills of Web Design or knowledge of virtual worlds.


There was a shift of consciousness after the protests and African Americans began seeking alternative places to call home; which included West African and their original heritage and culture. 

Legacy Designs Studio has grown from a few annual art exhibits to an entire educational and cultural organization dedicated to breaking the chains of generational trauma.

Content Creation

As a Genealogy Librarian and passionate Heritage Traveler, one of my favorite things to do is to conduct research about African American History and West African ancestry. With that research, I travel and come back to share all that I have learned. 



I take photos and create memorable videos of the arts, culture, and traditions I experience and learn about during my travels.



My mission when I return is to share stories that, educate and empower those who can not make the journey and inspire those who can to do so.



I want to empower black men, women and children through the Legacy of the work that I do. I want them to know that we have a history beyond slavery in the United States and that we come from a people of rich culture, and heritage.


I am available for collaborations that fit within this mission. Feel free to reach out. emailme@aishaladon.com
