This week on Litro Lab, Reagan Razon talks to us about how something as personal as hair can be used to police and oppress Blackness, controlling how people are treated in public spaces including work and school.
Reagan Razon is a rising senior from North Carolina. She has been training pre-professionally in ballet and jazz for 12 years. In addition to that, she excels in multi-variable calculus, biology, and physics. She volunteers often and enjoys helping out her community through Boys & Girls Club of America, Teen Council, and as Vice President of an organization that aims to close the gender and race gap in STEM. Reagan is very interested in Black and ethnic studies and spent the summer with Telluride Association Sophomore Seminar at University of Michigan where she developed this audio essay.
